Anti-game attorney Jack Thompson, facing disciplinary action and embroiled in a pair of contentious lawsuits against the Florida Bar, wrote in a Federal District Court motion yesterday that he is suffering from cardiac arrhythmia as well as chest pains. He added that the ailments seem stress-related. From Thompson's court filing:
Plaintiff, at 3 am this day, is suffering what he believes is arrhythmia, from which he has suffered previously, as well as chest pain. This may be a benign condition, or it may be serious. He has had other previous episodes like this induced by stress.
Plaintiff must try to see his cardiologist... to try to assess the problem. It is most likely stress-related by virtue of The Florida Bar’s demand that Thompson be psychiatrically/psychologically evaluated in violation of its own Rules.
