Jack Thompson has been disbarred permanently! He can no longer practice law and must also pay the Florida Bar back 43K in fees. HAHAHAHAHA

Hopefully he doesn't go on a rampage and then blame it on GTA...

Poor guy... Give him pocket change when you see him shuffling on the streets. Or you could just chuck those at him

Nice to see him go, but you do realize that this probably only applies to Florida. AFAIK there is nothing stopping him from taking the bar elsewhere and setting up shop there.

Except a horrible reputation for causing headaches. I don't know if anyone can stop him from being a lawyer anywhere else but if they can I'm sure they will. :lol:

He'd have to pay the fees to take the bar again and its not exactly easy to get through and then there's the good chance he'd be disbarred within a few months again.

WOOHOO! :headbang:

About time this guy got what he deserved after going after the gaming industry. Maybe he can be a better parent now and take care of his own son.


LOL! Who am I kidding?

They have to allow him to take the bar again, another states bar could refuse his entry based on his history and his disbarment in florida.

I'm not sure what you mean here... the first part of your sentence doesn't quite match the second or am I just being stupid.

If he wants to apply for a license to practice law in another state he must past the Bar Exam for that given state. The state could restrict him from taking the Bar Exam and preventing him from practicing law in the state based on his disbarment and history of reckless behavior as a lawyer in Florida.

Oh I see what you were saying.

You meant that he can't take it unless they let him take it, not that they MUST let him take it.

If he did it would have more to do with GTA than most of what gets blamed on it.:D
