Jack Thompson disbarred

The Courts 2

Sockatume (732728) writes "The Florida Supreme Court has approved Judge Dava Tunis' recommendations for the permanent disbarment of John B. "Jack" Thompson, with no leave to reapply and $43,675.35 in disciplinary costs. The ruling is a step up from the enhanced disbarment that had been suggested by the prosecution, which would have forbidden him from reapplying for ten years. Thompson has 30 days to appeal the ruling before the disbarment is permanent. Thompson responds to the ruling."

THE FLORIDA BAR (1)

Not the supreme court. I don't know where I got that from. I'm well aware that it was the bar. It doesn't even make sense for it to be otherwise. But there it is. Please fix before posting!

Actually it's both, the recommendation came from the Bar, the Supreme Court approved it.
