The Florida Supreme Court will no longer accept anything directly from controversial Miami attorney Jack Thompson. If Thompson wants to file with the Court, he’s going to need to hire another lawyer to do it on his behalf.
That’s the ruling handed down by the Court late this morning.
Game Politics has been diligently covering Thompson’s recent trial on professional misconduct charges by the Florida Bar, and has all of the juicy details, including a threat of legal action by Jack Thompson in an attempt to stop the coverage (or gain more press, I can’t tell).
Of course, we can be fairly certain that it’s not over yet. This will undoubtedly add rocket fuel to Thompson’s persecution complex, and if he doesn’t just completely snap and start killing people – and subsequently blame it on video games, naturally – I think it’s safe to say that we can expect some more hilariously entertaining press releases and courtroom drama.
[UPDATE] It would appear that I’ve gotten some cases mixed up (easy to do with Jack Thompson news) :
Game Politics : Just to be clear, this sanction imposed by the Florida Supreme Court is a separate issue from Thompson’s Bar Trial which we have been reporting on in a series of articles this week. No decision has been rendered by the referee in the Bar Trial as of yet.
