Kotaku Suit Goes Bye-Bye Over Thompson Screw-up

So, how’s that Law 101 class going?

Federal District Court Judge Paul Huck has dismissed a complaint filed Wednesday against Gawker Media, parent company of the popular Kotaku game blog. In his ruling, Judge Huck wrote that controversial attorney Jack Thompson had failed to follow the proper federal court procedure for amending a complaint.

For his part, Thompson admits his mistake and pleads ignorance (we’ll buy that), citing distractions he says were caused by the Florida Bar and an unnamed game website which published his home address and phone number.

Thompson vowed to the Court that he will re-file the Kotaku complaint, this time in accordance with the rules.
