Jack Thompson Responds to Judge with Animal House, Monica Lewinsky

Just stop…

That’s pretty much what U.S. District Court Judge Adalberto Jordan told controversial Miami attorney Jack Thompson in an order issued yesterday.

Judge Jordan, presiding over one of Thompson’s two lawsuits against the Florida Bar, last week (in a story broken by GamePolitics) spanked the anti-game attorney for including gay porn in a filing with the Court. His Honor gave Thompson until this Friday to explain why he shouldn’t be subjected to discipline in the matter, which could include a contempt of court finding.

Instead of filing a single response, however, Thompson has peppered the case docket with multiple responses (GP lost count). Apparently the Judge has run out of patience. Yesterday’s order reads, in part:

Mr. Thompson is hereby advised that the number of documents he has filed in this lawsuit is unreasonable and will not be tolerated… in the last week alone, Mr. Thompson filed 13 different documents in response to a single show cause order.

Here comes the zinger:

Despite what Mr. Thompson may think, this case is not a war with the world regarding the state of its moral standards (if it is, I clearly do not have jurisdiction). Therefore, he cannot continue to use this case as platform to battle everything in society with which he disagrees.

Ouch… By way of response (you knew he couldn’t just sit quietly) Thompson has filed a 14-page motion to have Judge Jordan removed from the case. In his filing, the quixotic attorney manages to drag in references as diverse as the film Animal House and the Monica Lewinsky affair:

…this particular judge was nominated by a President who… told the nation that “he did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

Thompson seems to indicate that he will ignore the order:

This court, as if it were King Canute ordering the tide not to come in… today orders Thompson to stop filing responses…

…and he repeatedly accuses the judge of lying (not generally recommended as a winning legal strategy):

Thompson, upon receipt of [Judge Jordan’s order], is embarrassed not by his conduct but that a federal judge could actually concoct such a fib.

…[Thompson] did not assume this court would make up facts and misrepresent the law.

Thompson actually threatens Judge Jordan with the specter of legal damages:

…when it a court goes beyond its pure decision-making judicial function, then it strips itself of its judicial immunity and exposes fully the person of the judge, individually, as a private citizen, to a claim for damages.

Here comes the Animal House reference:

Thompson is akin to Flounder in Animal House, when he is told by the brothers, “Hey, you screwed up. You trusted us.”

Actually, the line is, “You f***ed up. You trusted us,” but perhaps Thompson is trying to clean up his court filings in the wake of the gay porn fiasco. By the way, the pic attached to this article is, of course, actor Stephen Furst playing Kent “Flounder” Dorfman in Animal House.

GP: We asked Thompson for comment on Judge Jordan’s shut up-and-desist order via e-mail, but received no response.

    you could always consider it a ‘religious’ war. in this case, it a war between jacko’s personal brand of religion (which has little to nothing to do with christianity) and the artistic expression of the gamers.
    religion is a personal belief. i don’t connect jacko with any other people who take pride in being labelled christians.

    For those who want to know, I’m agnostic (not in that I am uncertain, but I believe that it is metaphysically IMPOSSIBLE to make any sort of supernatural value judgement with the information on hand). And again, I apologize if I offend anyone by simply labeling Christian dogma for what it is. All of the value claims I posit on Christian dogma can be confirmed by “holy” scripture.

    And again, if you don’t realize that this is literally a cultural war between religious superstition and artistic freedom, I pity your ignorance.

    Jack’s probably not around because he has been to so many gay porn sites that his computer is so full of spyware and trojans that they are coming out of his ass. Go to the wrong site and you are screwed. Puns intended. Maybe you should go to San fransisco and tap your feet in some stalls.

    But seriously Jack you keep telling us Gamers to put down the controller and get outside. Well maybe its time you put down the mouse and keyboard. Stop trolling game sites and gay porn sites. And go out and have a picnic with your wife and family. Seems to me that you are so busy worrying about everyone else’s kids that you are probably neglecting your own.

    Which is probably the main cause for kids going crazy and shooting people. Parents that are neglecting there kids and are to busy to spend time with them. Or they are to busy or stupid to realize that maybe this kid needs help lets get him or her some treatment or counseling.

    It seems to me that if you love your family maybe you should spend some quality time with them. Stings to best buy do not count. Before you lose them or before your kid goes nuts.

    I’m not a lawyer, but this is how I understand it. If you (in the judges opinion) act inappropriately in court, you can be held in contempt. This can happen from inappropriate language/crude remarks, introducing evidence in a closing when it wasn’t properly entered during the trial, disrespectful remarks towards the judge, etc. Basically, if you disregard procedure or act disrespectfully, you can be held in contempt.

    Thank you so much for calling Jack out on his shit! I would buy you a drink, but I’m not legal yet. Thus, I’ll buy you a giant cookie, like those ones they have at Old Chicago that’s like the size of a pizza and has vanilla ice cream melted on top. (Of course, he isn’t trolling this board like Jack, so he’ll never know about my offer and I’ll never have to actually buy him it.)

    We probably haven’t heard from Thompson yet, due to him being a mite busy trying to scramble his way out of this one. When the judge orders you to stop filing irrelevant BS, I think even Jack knows he’s in trouble and needs to concentrate on matters more important than harassing a website. I’m sure he’s got comments he’d love to say on the story, he just doesn’t have time to do so.

    After all, as a foot soldier in the cultural war, Jack’s discovering that the front line is a grinder that turns foot soldiers into hamburger meat more often than not. In such light, the blades heading for his career are a bit more important than a website.

    Interesting. Some of these lines are real classics.

    I’m not sure Animal House or Bill Clinton’s sex affair is a good analogy/point to discredit judge, respectfully.

    Also, Thompson is comparing himself to Canute… That would be a millenia old Danish King, right?

    Also, foot soldier in the cultural war? More like road block. Never did anything, and just caused problems to those who actually wanted to do something. Of course, I’m against censorship, but does Jack have any friends at all? Who’s really supporting him now?

    Well seriously, after the legal blogs ridiculed Thompson’s actions and the fact that courts doesn’t really favor him, I’d say he’s one heck of a guy if he still continues his antics. But then again, I wouldn’t be surprised. After all, this is Jack Thompson.

    Just a thought: if many sane minds are against you and you’re still up for the fight, then you have my utmost respect. But if you’re up against many sane minds, selfishly still try to battle a lost cause and constantly trying to rewrite the law, then I think you’re just trying to create a nuisance. It’s like saying the law is wrong even if 99.8% of the population agrees with it.

    Do ya’ll not see what he is doing? He knows he is in trouble so he is going for the long shot. He is probably figuring if he can push the right buttons with the judge he will snap and JT then can scream “See this judge hates me we can’t possibly go to trial with him!”. It completely depends on JT’s ability to annoy people and the judge stooping to JT’s level.

    It would of simply been to buy time, but it seems to have backfired. Though lets be honest what did JT have to lose?

    I could care less about that no-talent assclown. I think you missed my point.

    I was comparing Jack Thompson possibly ignoring the court’s order that he stop filing any more documents that may or may not relate to his suit against the Florida Bar to Spears ignoring the court’s order that she submit to drug testing among other things.

    In the end, Thompson is no different than Spears.

    Someone else has already probably mentioned this, but I think I’ve discovered what to do if I ever get in trouble with the law.

    First, I’ll threaten whatever judge is taking my case.

    Then, I’ll get him removed from it. After all, I’ve just threatened him, so he can’t be impartial anymore right?

    After I get a new judge, I’ll insult him and his family. Hence, he’ll no longer be impartial, and I’ll have him removed. Repeat till infinity. I’ll never have my case actually tried..
    Wait… that actually doesn’t work? Darn….

    “2. After watching the Destructoid interviews with Mr. Thompson during the Bully fiasco, it is blatantly obvious that Mr. Thompson has calm and reasonable side that would pass a psychiatric evaluation with flying colors.”

    Darned right, Jack has been like this for quite a while. He reminds me of net kooks, in real life they might be quite civil(or scared shitless to do anything) and function with no problems(that blatantly stand out to others). Yet with anonymity on the internet & no “punishment” for their questionable/horrible statements & actions, it brings out some people’s true selves.

    There are net kooks that do cross the “internet line,” and do things like real life stalking, phone harassment(anyone the person knows or has a connection with), etc…. Humm, didn’t someone file a complaint about Thompson stalking them? And there is those phone calls he has made to Dennis, other commenters, and sticking his nose into police cases he has no business being involved in….

    Until the individual realizes it, admits that they have such a problem, and WANTS to cooperate & fix the problem, they are still going to keep at it.

    I really do admire Judge Jordan’s restraint in this. If I’d read through half the crap that Thompson posted against Jordan and I was in his place, you’d need a dozen guards to keep me from leaping down and strangling Thompson where he sits. I wonder if Judge Jordan is going to file any libel suits against JT when this is done, hell I would. Thompson’s trying to slander an honourable man just so he can save his own sin.

    People take note. Now we’re hundreds of comments in and haven’t heard squat from our favourite clown. He only ever harasses us or GP whenever he perceives himself to be winning (Iraqi Information Minister School of Reasoning graduate, perhaps?). This time he must know he’s in shit because he hasn’t threatened “big things” yet or reminded us once again that Dennis isn’t a real journalist.

    The taxpayers of Florida should press a civil case against him along with the bar proceedings to recoup the millions of dollars spent tying up their court system. This man only has to pay $300 to file his cases and according to the evidence he has submitted cases without paying this fee until later. In fact, in one docket he made a motion to get his $300 dollars back.

    This man touts his religion as part of his reasoning for wasting this time’ claiming to be God’s Warrior and a good christian. Goodness is self evident by actions. His actions prove he is nothing but a scofflaw who desires power for himself, not for the altruistic goal of saving children. A true christian never has to say it, it is self evident. He is a very spiteful little man filled with hate. He deserves everthing coming to him and his family, which I hate to say is nothing but sorrow and pain. His hate speech is appalling I.e. “e-tards” to everyone and is nothing but poison. I look forward to the day this bigot has no voice and the troll he is comes out from under his bridge.

    We gather here today to lay to rest the Career and Dignity of Jack Thompson.

    They had been deathly ill for years, always fighting impossible and asinine battles for no good reason. They were filled with lies, hate, and terribly construed mis-quotes, but yet it took a Judge to finally put them out of their misery.

    They are survived by Jack Thompson’s Religion Fervor, Unrepentant Narcissism and Lack of Intelligence. While they had poor examples to live up to we cannot hope that they will fair any better and will certainly suffer the same fate soon.

    I’m inclined to agree with your sentiment, however, I think the reason it appears is two-fold. For one, Dennis has received a lot of harassment from Thompson over the years, and there is probably a certain degree of justification in watching the man destroy himself without any help whatsoever from those he accused of trying to destroy him. Secondly, it’s like a ‘special interest’ article.

    As has been mentioned before, Jack Thompson has ‘Car Crash’ appeal, you keep wanting to learn more just to see how bad it can get. Whether that’s a good idea or not is hard to say, Dennis is perfectly aware that Jack loves to get attention, I’ll admit that sometimes I wish Jack didn’t get as much attention as he does, it’s playing into his hands, but when he goes and does stuff like this, especially after the unprofessional attitude he had on here, there is a certain degree of gratification in his self-destruction.

    Then I hit Jack’s reply (just because I like to see the actual document myself) I had to stop. He wasn’t even using complete sentences and proper grammar, now I know legal jargon is a little different from “regular” English, but things like forgetting a D at the end of the word AND (an it …) and leaving entire words out of you’re argument, I don’t understand how he even manages to get taken seriously anymore?

    Honestly if he doesn’t get disbarred soon just for his complete lack of respect for his superiors (yes Jacky boy the judge does sit higher on the totem pole then you even if you’ve been doing law “longer” then he has as you claim) and for his butchering of the English language, or for his complete tangents in his motions I will lose all hope in our legal system, because if this loony can keep practicing law I have no faith in our system.

    Jack Thompson’s File
    with apologies to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Listen and hear my strange story, son
    Of the gay porn file by Jack Thompson,
    on the nineteenth September, twenty-ought-seven
    Thompson by order of heaven
    decided to lose his hold on reason

    He said to himself, “If Judge Jordan needs
    proof of conspiracy with Norm Kent
    I’ll click links on his site, and see where each leads
    if treachery I find, an email will be sent
    one to the judge, and two for the court
    and then the whole world will see just what sort
    of criminals control the Fla-Bar
    I’ll raise alarm in this new culture war
    so these villains will fear the feathers and tar

    Then he said “Good God!” and with muffled roar
    Silently stared at his flat monitor,

    (OKAY, I can’t finish this. Somebody else make the next stanza about what he finds. Reference is here: http://poetry.eserver.org/paul-revere.html Remember to match the meter and rhyme scheme!)

    I’m surprised JT hasn’t posted yet blaming Dennis for not reporting the whole story or something.

    He does it constantly, and usually the stuff Dennis leaves out makes Thompson look worse in the long run, so Dennis is usually doing Thompson a favor by leaving some of that crap out. But then of course that dumb ass comes in claiming this and that and then gets Dennis to provide the rest of the info which eventually just makes him looking more like a court jester than a court attorney.

    Jack, just quit. Okay, we know. You crave attention, you love being in the spot light, but you’re just getting ridiculous now. No one is listening anymore because they realise you don’t know what you’re talking about and you never have real proof to back up your insane claims. You’re just a sad little clown to us now.

    Hey Dudes check out the latest at http://www.nationalgaynews.com


    Late Breaking Bulletin: Judge Adalberto Jordan this afternoon referred Jack Thompson to the US District Court Committee on Attorney Admissions, Peer Review, and Attorney Grievance, for what he deemed, “appropriate action” by “his filing of graphic images of oral and genital sex between adult males in the public record” in the case before the court.

    Further, the Court directed the committee to make a final determination whether the “filing was inappropriate, and if necessary” to impose “the appropriate sanctions.”

    The Court further admonished Mr. Thompson for misrepresenting and mischaracterizing its positions, noting that this case is “about a Florida disciplinary proceeding against Mr. Thompson only. It is not about the alleged conduct of other attorneys licensed by the Florida Bar…but not surprisingly, Mr. Thompson is using this case to further his social and moral views.”

    Thompson had tried to lay the blame for all his problems on the “liberal Bar” who he said was “collaborating” with NGN Publisher, Norm Kent, a Florida attorney.

    The Court then denied Thompson’s motion to recuse.

    I think the interesting thing here is the First Amendment issues. Where does the line come where ‘Freedom of Speech’ becomes ‘Discrediting the organisation’, after all, there’s a difference between ‘Some of the people I work with approach matters in an unprofessional manner’ and ‘I’m surrounded by braindead morons’, even if that difference is the wording, everyone knows that as far as context is concerned, they mean the same thing.

    Perception and intent mostly. If the comment was designed to harm the target, and was known to be harmful (not in a “hurts feelings” harmful, but more a “hurts financially” harmful), then you might have a case. For example, saying “JT is a loud-mouth jerk.” is harmful, but not libelous. Saying “JT distributes child porn.” *is* harmful, and a direct lie designed to harm his reputation.

    JT though, has proven time and time again that what’s fair for him to say about others is not fair for others to say about him. If he ever got off his arse and actually filed one of those lawsuits he keeps threatening against anyone who criticized him, it would get thrown out as soon as the judge saw the mountain of evidence that it was the pot calling the kettle black. JT knows this, which is why he never follows through.

    @Iniquus: I remember that in 2004 near the release of GTA: SA he did something remotely similar, but not nearly as bad as he’s been this time around. He’s either pushing for something to happen so he can jump on it, or he’s just crazy and digging his own grave. Only time will tell.

    But yes, I’d go with a personality disorder as well. He sorta shows some bipolar behaviorisms, but certainly not enough to actually be bipolar. Yet again though, I must state that it depends on his intentions — we don’t know them yet. Of course, Jack isn’t too deep, so he’s easy to figure out and I’m sure the judge has already figured what we’ve postulated thus far.

    But I digress. There is really something off here. Mike had a very good point too. When all is said and done, his actions are all we can really go on. I have to wonder if even he knows his motivations at times. He seems to be very VERY reactionary and defensive. I honestly worry about the man.

Basically, he’ about to lock out the only ability he has in fighting us.

    As for the idea of fighting from the sidelines. the man can’t keep an ally as it is. Add in getting fired on top of his normal insanity? I don’t think there’s anyone with serious power who’d back the guy. Even with this marytr status.

    Criticism would be to say the first sentence, insult would be to say the second, and I think that’s where he consistently slips up, his problem is not what he says, he has a First Amendment right to that, but more about how he says it, which is totally and wholly incompatible with his role as a lawyer.

Regardless, I think he really doesn’t possess a clear perception of the real consequences of his actions.

    Mike says:

    I’m pretty sure I know what Jack is up to.

    I’ve had two uncle lawyers, both highly respected. One, slightly before I was born in ’90 made a wrong move at the wrong people. He got a civil trial out of that (after being debarred and / or unlawyered xP) expecting to win, but he didn’t. He failed miserably because of the inconsistency and furthermore the level of idiocy he showed. He challenged the wrong people and that’s what Jack is doing.

    In Jack’s fucked up little head, he believes he can act crazy (the gay porn and 13 filings can be a testament to this), get the judge to make a breakneck decision, and then challenge that decision… and win.

    Jack is noted as being an IRL troll at this point, and nothing more. Again, he’s probably got this little idea, and not realizing that he’s digging a deeper hole with every motion. If he keeps this up, he’s going to end up in the poor house and going job to job no matter how qualified he is: just like my uncle (who died in 2006 due to bad living conditions).

    So given the above, I’d say he’s a retarded genius. He’s got a good plan, but he’s going about it wrongly and it’s going to fall through, leading to a horrible outcome on his part. But he will most likely continue with it, because that’s how he is.

    If I’m wrong, he’s just a retarded retard. If he’s actually legit, he’s doing things that push the very edge of sanity, and eventually the rope snaps. Especially since I’m sure the bar (and any judge in the universe for that matter) knows how easy it would be to buy a “sane” verdict on his mental state. He may not be rich from all the losing cases he’s been through, but he does have some money no doubt and can use it for his own benefit.

    Again, the question is what his intentions are.

    Even so, his intentions do not clear him of the wrong doings he has undertaken, false lawsuits, false claims and more so. I’d say the gameTwat article doesn’t help either, given that he said he would take GP to court. I’d like to know this: for what? As far as I know, GP (or the ECA, which he loves to hate, for that matter) have done nothing explicitly against him. He’s just the one making the most white noise out there.

    He’s walking a thin black line at this point, in the middle of night, in a desert, during a sandstorm. Yes, Jack, your situation is that dire.

    What can you REALLY say though? The guy thinks he’s a martyr, and to be honest I’m concerned about his son. For one, you know a fifteen year old kid is going to enjoy his new copies of BioShock and Halo 3, probably behind daddy’s back, and even if not, what happens when Jack’s lawyer’s license is revoked and his cash goes down the gutter? The kid is going to have a ruined life because of how dumb daddy is.

    I suppose if Jack doesn’t really care about his kid, which he doesn’t, he should continue this futile pursuit for non-existant “justice”.

    Look, I’ll concede one point to him – he’s right I’m not a lawyer. With that having been said, maybe the people with some legal background in the GP community can clear something up for me. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to get along with judges? I’m not saying you have to like everything they say, suck up, or even like them personally; but isn’t it a question of professionalism here? At what point does pissing-off-judges become an exercise in shooting yourself in the foot? I know that judges are required to be impartial – it’s part of the job; but I can only imagine that the day to day business of the courts involves many different kinds of decisions that become (forgive the pun) judgement calls. If I were an attorney trying a case before a judge, it seems to me a non-pissed off judge would be more likely to show me leniency, which would in turn, make it easier for me to build a good case.

    Jack will be a martyr to no one except himself. Even a cursory look at his history will show how much of an ass he is. Most people will at least remember him from 2 Live Crew and Howard Stern, and once they see the stuff about the gay porn and the other examples of his wild behavior, it will be difficult for anyone to sympathize with him. Looking at the accounts of the Bully case, and his appearances after V-Tech in particular should provide adequate examples that the guy is off his rocker.

    As I have posted in a different topic, Jack Thompson thinks that this is the Gamer-Antigamer War. It is not a “hot war (as in a real war with weapons)”. It might be a “cold war (as in a war of words and opinions)”, a “political war”, and in Jack Thompson’s words, a “propaganda war”. Also, I have a person of interest, who is a gamer, but he says that kids should not be playing M-rated video games. He says that if kids are trying to buy M-rated video games, then they should have real ID cards, just like with R-rated movies, adult rated music, as well as Mature and Adult rated comic books. The person of interest might be voting for Hillary Clinton. Also, Hillary Clinton has said that she is not doing, as some people say, her anti-game cause. She supports gaming. She is trying to prevent kids from buying M-rated media, while following the US Constitution, or so that’s what the person of interest thinks. The problem is that certain gamers think about what Hillary Clinton said (about that she is not going to be a problem for M-rated video games), that they think that is “too little, too late”.

    I think we’ve just seen his strategy in action. He’s not crazy, I agree, but if he can keep *acting* like he is and get people to *respond* to them like he is, he can accuse them of bias and gain what he considers a moral, ethical, and legal upper hand. You’ll notice that even though the judge responded quite reasonably (as anyone would) to Jack’s deluge of filings, Jack’s acting like he was mortally insulted and that the Judge is depriving him of his rights. Whether that’s true or not, it casts a (small) measure of doubt on the proceedings, and gives him an option to keep going even when he gets smacked down.

    While overlooked, I agree. Considering this situation from a perspective of his own demagogue-tendencies, JT has potential for a win/win situation. If he gets disbarred, just like you said, he can claim the martyrdom, and the mainstream America will only see the end of the conflict, as usual. If the media decides to take his side of the story as the “Real” version, it would be easy to swing it to show the corruption. Since 90% of America abides by the doctrine of “If it’s on TV, it’s gotta be True,” JT at least has a chance of drumming up some support and saving face.

    Conversely, if he doesn’t get disbarred–he can use the entire situation as a claim of validity for what he’s saying. “Look! They can’t disbar because I’m right!” which again, to uninformed easily swayed information consumer would give him back some of the credibility he’s sacrificed. If he’s enough the sensationalist — the outcome of this situation is relevant — he could use it to swing public opinion either way. That’s a big If, but I agree with Grey — Thompson is playing at something else here. …

    I wonder how many more judges he’ll be able to go through with his strategy of alienating them, and then claiming bias.

    Well, JT’s problem is that if he want the case to be tried by someone OUTSIDE the authority of the Florida Bar, FIRST he has to lose a case, and then appeal. But he seems intent on stalling by accusing all of being biased, and so he’ll just keep running through the list of judges under the FlaBar’s authority.

    Considering how many judges there are, and he runs through about one a year, I think he’ll have died of old age before he gets through them all…

    I’m glad he has been certified as sane, that means he has no out when it is time to answer for his behavior. I wouldn’t be so quick to take Dr. Wunderman to task for that diagnoses.

    Actually that’s a good point. He’s already argued he’s mentally fit to stand up for his actions, so he can’t turn around and pull something like that “oooo, I’ve been having heart troubles” ploy. (And yes, I’m accusing him of using it as a ploy. Any stress that may have caused it is a direct result of his own doing.)

    You know, if we judged impartiality the way it’s represented in the response, then nobody would be found guilty of anything…ever.

    It’s like saying that a Jury has no reason to find a murderer guilty despite a wealth of evidence and witnesses because it wouldn’t be an ‘impartial’ judgement, all that evidence has obviously turned the jury against the defendant.

    Just as I’ve said before, Dr. Wunderman, as many psychologists and counselors, are welcome to use their religious beliefs to counsel their patients. However, because he and John Bruce share the same belief system, then it should be as much a conflict of interest in his determing “sanity” of any individual as it would be a conflict of interest if a psychologist, holding extreme religious beliefs about homosexuals, were to attempt to evaluate Fred Phelps.

    Again, I’m discerning between straightforward counseling and evaluation.

    But clearly, Dr. Wunderman may have stepped his foot in it because John Bruce’s further actions might clearly question Dr. Wunderman’s motives in making the determination that he did. Frankly, it’s possible that Dr. Wunderman was doing the right thing, only to have John Bruce metaphorically stab him in the back by completely acting irrational.

    I wonder how Thompson is physically. I remember a report posted here a few months back that stated Thompson was having heart problems. This is sure to compound those alleged heart problems. I also wonder about his family, particularly his son. He’s using his son as a pawn to demonstrate a non-point. Since Thompson belives videogames are toxic, could it therefore be argued that Thompson is submitting his child to a form of abuse? Should social services be called?

    I do not merely state these things just to fill up time. I state them because there may be avenues to pursue in the legal realm.

    Thompson is so obsessed with this so called “culture war”.

    If the US Supreme Court disagreed with him (as it most surely would) he would do all in his power to denigrate the integrity of the highest court in the land. He’d say they’re pawns of the “toxicity” of our culture.

    I will admit that our culture has it’s sleazy points (Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, etc.) but I hardly think the fate of society rests upon whether or not Rockstar games is able to put out another GTA or Microsoft puts out another Halo.

    This court… today orders Thompson to stop filing responses to this court’s Order to Show Cause of September 24

    You know Thompson, lying in a legal document can get you in even more trouble. But I guess your plan all along is to go to jail isn’t it? Become a pathetic martyr for the cause.

    The judge ordered you to only file ONE response to each order. ONE. Not 12, not 5, not 42. Sum it up in ONE document. You can make it 400,000 pages long if you want, but it has to all be in ONE filing.

    This court fabricated out of whole cloth the assertion that Thompson had exposed “children” to “obscenity,”

    Really? What WOULD you call filing gay porn in a public docket that is accessible by everyone? You yourself have declared that credit cards are not enough to keep children from getting M-rated games, so really, you KNOWINGLY publicly distributed porn…

    Further, when his court actually stated in an order that the forensic evaluation of Dr. Wunderman could be filed with the court, although it was “irrelevant” despite the fact that it clearly showed the bad faith of The Bar in its attempt to pathologize Thompson’s Christian faith yet again(!),

    If you are ordered to provide a document, a single document, with your reason for xyz piece of evidence and instead you file several things, none of which comply with the request, and some of which attacks the judge outright, it’s not the judge who’s going to be removed. JT might be locked up for contempt, but the judge if free and clear.

    I’m rather impressed the judge hasn’t already started throwing the entire book at him, along with the bookcase, kitchen sink, and anything else he can throw.

    So the judge is harrassed to the point where it is impossible like JT, and he wants him removed? It’s easy to see that the judges responses are influenced by JT himself, and that he alone created this negative environment for his own case.

    I think it is contemptible to immediately disobey a direct order from a judge. The filing was the one permissible document, but the content was mostly fluff unimportant to the case. It was especially bad to question the judges credentials especially when your own are scrutinized. We’ll see how it pans out.

    BTW, even with my lack of law knowledge, this tatic to remove the judge was very blatant to me as a stunt. A lawyer or judge would see through it in an instant.

    From only what little I’ve read, this judge has been very tolerant, and it would behoove JT to show a little respect for the judge, the court, and the Florida Bar.

    The only problem is that this impartiality cannot reasonably be questioned by anyone. Not even Thompson. So we will see how long it will be before he has to get someone else to sign his legal documents.

    You would think that, with some of the extremely tortured applications we’ve seen from Mr. Thompson, this would be the case, but jury tampering is simply what it says it is – trying to unduly influence the jury in a case, whether by bribing, threats, the like. All of Mr. Thompson’s cases, from what I can remember, aren’t even close to the jury stage.

    My point is that while we may have reason to question Dr. Wunderman’s diagnosis, there are two major points to consider:

    1. We were not present during the evaluation and diagnosis, so what information we do know comes from Mr. Thompson.

    2. After watching the Destructoid interviews with Mr. Thompson during the Bully fiasco, it is blatantly obvious that Mr. Thompson has calm and reasonable side that would pass a psychiatric evaluation with flying colors.

    Based on those two points, how can you blame Dr. Wunderman? What would it say of the professionalism of a doctor who searched internet forums and legal dockets to make his diagnosis? If my doctor diagnosed me on my past online statements, I’m pretty sure I would have been locked up by now.

    “The court is like the schoolyard bully who taunts and throws the first punch, and then complains that what he wanted to be a human punching bag is punching back.”

    So Jack, how is it any different from all the bullsh_t lawsuits you fling all over the place? How is it different from the unending torrent of insults you’ve rained on us since what seems like the beginning of time? Aren’t you the one doing the complaining right now?

    I see your plan. Keep pissing off all the presiding judges so you can recuse them claiming bias…what, are you hoping they’ll eventually run out of judges? Intelligence-wise, pretty much par for the course for you. Nice knowing you, chump. Not.

    Thank you so much for pointing this out.

    I could kiss you, but, y’know, if Jack hears of it, he’ll call it gay porn, and file it with all his BS motions.

    your concern is noted, but i do not encourage harassment.
    i do encourage everyone to give both the Florida Bar and Dr. Wunderman a civil phone call.

    The bar because it is appropriate and Thompson’s continued lunacy should be rightly recorded to include every citizen’s complaint against him.

    Dr. Wunderman because it is entirely unfathomable that this for-hire shrink was fully impartial in his “diagnosis” of Thompson and he either needs to own up to his error or stop practising. He is just as culpable as when Thompson tries to use the “games made me do it” defense to free Devin Moore from responsibility of action.

    Thank you for your frank appraisal, hopefully you understand (if not agree with) my methods.

    I have to agree with GameDevMich, Conejo. Publishing some ones number like that is encouraging harassment.

    While we make fun of Mr Thompson and despise his intolerant facist views, we needn’t sink to his level of abuse, bullying, and harrasment.

    Hopefully Denis will see this and edit out those numbers.

    Shoehorn O’Plenty posted this link last night in the “Legal Blogs React to Jack Thompson’s Gay Porn Court Filing” story, now with a update regarding Thompson’s motion to have Judge Jordan removed:


    Thompson responded Monday evening to the Judge’s new order with a stunning seven page motion to recuse Judge Jordan, attacking the jurist personally for “illegal and unethical conduct,” at page 2 of his pleading.

    Thompson added the judge acted “foolishly,” entering an illegal order that was a “masterwork in mendacity,” remarking that the judge’s order was “the single worst disregard of the truth that Thompson has seen in his 31 years of practicing law.”

    Not finished there, then Thompson added at page 3 that Judge Jordan was nothing more than a “schoolyard bully,” who was still in law school while Thompson was a “foot soldier in the culture war.”

    Thompson, in his next sentence added that Judge Jordan was playing “an amateur psychologist,” and had “disgraced the federal bench, violated its oath of office, and lost any presumption of impartiality and any semblance of decency.”

    On page 4 of the motion Thompson added that the Court (Judge Jordan) knowingly lied (‘prevaricated,’ he wrote) in its September 24 order, and acted outside its judicial authority, threatening to sue the judge personally for damages, claiming “this federal judge….does not know the law.”

    On the next page, Thompson concludes the Court was “careless and set a snare for itself,” proving its “patent bias” which stem from the Court’s “loyalty to the Florida Bar elitists and their ilk.”

    Then, on page 6 of his motion to recuse Judge Jordan, he adds that before him is a jurist “for whom the facts and the law….mean nothing,” concluding that the Judge had “made up facts and misrepresented the law.”

    Finally, Thompson reasoned that the court has to disqualify itself because it has “revealed its animus to him.”

    However, one legal expert who reviewed the pleading says that once again the document failed to comply with the federal rules and was “legally insufficient.” Though choosing not to be identified, he said that Thompson has “all but assured this Court will sanction him severely, right up to direct criminal contempt,” a sanction that could lead to jail or fines.

    In an earlier pleading Thompson dared Judge Jordan to put him in jail. “He may now get his wish,” the NGN source stated.

    Sounds like Jack’s going to PMITA prison.

    @Conejo – While your contempt for Mr. Thompson is widely known, and perhaps justified based on your own beliefs and exposure, posting the number of Dr. Wunderman with intentions of group harassment is uncalled for.

    I am not in control of you, and am generally not one to throw rocks in a glass house, but this is something I wanted to bring to your attention. If you believe there is a “conflict” between you and Mr. Thompson, take it up with him.

    If you want to follow the public records of his FL Bar hearing, I definitely encourage that. Encouraging the harassment of an “innocent” person with more experience in a field than you (me as well) is misguided.

    After reading a few pages and getting bored of JTs rebuttal heres a brief summary for other people

    Not only is it a rehash of his ramblings about everything he does along with his accusitory tone of writing/rambling but the great thing about this one is it is so patently clear he is in the wrong

    he is trying to criminalise the judge for asking thompson to show the relevance of his gay porn filing, painting it as threats and punishments whenthe judge is doing his job. Every sentence almost is Jt trying to demonise jordan for this and exonerate himself.

    Guess what jack it wont work, jordan is simply trying to make you prove the relevance of your filing, if it was relevant you have nothing to fear, but you are afraid because you know youre acting like a douchebag.

    enjoy losing your lisence, i know we will.

    Too bad he didn’t use “This is fair…. NOT!” in his court document again. That was the most amusing one I’ve seen.

    Perhaps he’s setting up an insanity defense? After reading his filings over the past year, the phrase “Completely batshit insane” is about all that seems to come to mind anymore when I think of Thompson.

    In any event, he’s probably the single best thing to ever happen to the video game industry.

    There was a time when I though JT was smart enough to weasel out of getting disbarred by keeping a low profile.

    I’m happy to see hes doing the opposite because no one shows just how crazy-loco-batsh*t-insane Jack Thompson is than Jack Thompson

    […] GamePolitics.com posted an amusing article about the ongoing of attorney Jack Thompson’s lawsuits against the Florida Bar. Thompson filed 13 different responses to a single “show cause” order. Judge Adalberto Jordan’s had it. The whole article is too long to repeat here, so just read it on their excellent website. My favorite of it all: Despite what Mr. Thompson may think, this case is not a war with the world regarding the state of its moral standards (if it is, I clearly do not have jurisdiction). Therefore, he cannot continue to use this case as platform to battle everything in society with which he disagrees. […]

    Ok, so from what I have read about King Canute is that he used that as an example of the limitations of his power. Thompson here seems to be using in a mocking fashion, indicating that the court is Canute and they are foolish for ordering the tide to stop. Does he see himself as the tide?

    “All Thompson sought was a fair federal judge who would look at the due process, etc etc”

    It seems to me that Judge Jordan has been more than fair, as i’m sure some would have given up long ago. So, it begs the question, what would JT term as a ‘fair’ judge?

    And how many more times do we have to hear or read that JT is a so called ‘Christian’?

    Ignoring the court’s orders will not help Jack whatsoever. All he has to do is go ask Britney Spears, since she lost custody of her two young children yesterday because she ignored the court’s orders of random drug testing, meeting with a drug counselor, attending parenting classes, she never even signed the judge’s order.


    Anyway, back on topic:

    Further proof Jack has lost his mind.

    “What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

    Actually, this case has everything to do with video games.

    This case arose out of the Florida Bar’s disciplinary proceedings regarding Thompson’s alleged misconduct in the Alabama “Grand Theft Auto” wrongful death lawsuit (Strickland v. Sony Corp.) and his attempt to have “Bully” declared a nuisance in Florida (Thompson v. Wal-Mart Stores). In each of those cases, the presiding judge asked the Florida Bar to look into whether Thompson’s conduct violated the Bar’s code of conduct. After reviewing the matters, the Florida Bar filed two disciplinary complaints against Thompson with the Florida Supreme Court.

    The legal case that is the subject of this thread is a lawsuit filed by Thompson against the Florida Bar in federal court that attempts to block the bar’s disciplinary proceedings related to his conduct in the video game cases.

    So, while the procedural history is confusing, this case IS about video games.

    Been following the JT thing for a while now quietly watching. Been hard at times to remain quiet. But I dislike being a Troll. There is just something about JT that brings that out in people. Maybe that is his true and only gift.

    I am JT and I bring you “Annoyance”!!

    Sigh. It seems pretty clear to me that Jack has lost his last bid for retaining his ability to practice law (maybe he should have practiced more instead of creating his own along the way). I am worried though. Yes worried. Oh I will offer a small dance when he is disbarred (pety I know but hey I am vicious gamer type) My worry is what happens afterwards. I had a nightmare that I could see all to easily coming true.

    Jack loses his licence and goes underground for a short bit. We all go back to watching the pretty pixels (Shooting innocents, burning, raping and pillaging) and let down our guard… then…. Poof. JT returns as a Minister (Gods “Angry man” or some-such) leading his holy crusade against us on public television. Scary huh?

    He keeps digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole he already cannot hope to get himself out of. The 14 page document he filed makes little to no sense and looks like nothing but mindless ramblings. Hell in one part he thinks the judge should be removed from the case because he was appointed by President Clinton. He is just reaching now, grasping for a last ditch effort to keep his license and avoid any possible jail time for being held in contempt of court.

    I keep chiming in with this, but how can he carry on like this and not have it impact his personal life as much as his professional one?

    According to legal blogs (okay, not nearly as professional as I was expecting them to be), he’s a laughing stock. How can his wife not be affected by this? How can his wife condone bringing their underage son into what is clearly going to be his Waterloo?

    How can she condone that he’s practically got no income? That he’s basically squandered “31 years of practicing law.”

    And 31 years practicing law? You’ve hardly practiced Jack, unless you’re representing rich people on DUIs and speeding tickets. Or chasing down some frivolous malpractice lawsuit.
