Gamepolitics is reporting that the infamous anti-videogame lawyer Jack Thompson has been permanently disbarred effective October 25th after the Flordia Supreme Court made a ruling in his case.
When reading the decision, the Court cited Thompson’s long history of public misconduct while adding the recommendations of Judge Dava Tunis, the judge who was in charge of Thompson’s ethics trial last year. In addition to the disbarring, the court is ordering Thompson to pay $43,675 USD in monetary restitution for legal fees incurred by the state.
In response to the decision Thompson has filed an appeal and is looking for an emergency stay on the decision. Additionally, Thompson released a press statement that calls the the decision a “retaliation for Thompson’s Tyndale House book Out of Harm’s Way, published in 2005, which blew the whistle on the Florida Supreme Court’s earlier efforts in the 1990’s to literally pathologize his faith-based and successful activism against the American entertainment industry.”
