* it's possible that the link above doesn't load. GamePolitics is getting HAMMERED because of this news.

It's official. The Florida Supreme Court today affirmed a referee's recommendation to permanently disbar our dear Jack Thompson.
The action, which takes effect in 30 days, means that Thompson will no longer be licensed to practice law and may not apply for reinstatement. Ever.


Some of these [offenses] include findings that Thompson made false statements and accusations, repeatedly harassed those he considered opponents, and, while falsely accusing others of "the criminal distribution of sexual materials to minors," himself attached pornography to court filings.
  • [Thompson] made false statements of material fact to courts and repeatedly violated a court order

  • [Thompson] communicated the subject of representation directly with clients of opposing counsel

  • [Thompson] engaged in prohibited ex parte communications

  • [Thompson] publicized and sent hundreds of pages of vitriolic and disparaging missives, letters, faxes, and press releases, to the affected individuals

  • [Thompson] targeted an individual who was not involved with respondent in any way, merely due to "the position [the individual] holds in state and national politics"

  • [Thompson]falsely, recklessly, and publicly accused a judge as being amenable to the "fixing" of cases

  • [Thompson] sent courts inappropriate and offensive sexual materials

  • [Thompson] falsely and publicly accused various attorneys and their clients of engaging in a conspiracy/enterprise involving "the criminal distribution of sexual materials to minors" and attempted to get prosecuting authorities to charge these attorneys and their clients for racketeering and extortion

  • [Thompson] harassed the former client of an attorney in an effort to get the client to use its influence to persuade the attorney to withdraw a defamation suit filed by the attorney against respondent

  • [Thompson] retaliated against attorneys who filed Bar complaints against him for his unethical conduct by asserting to their clients, government officials, politicians, the media, female lawyers in their law firm, employees, personal friends, acquaintances, and their wives, that the attorneys were criminal pornographers who objectify women.
The Court also upheld a fine of $43,675 against Thompson.
