Judge in Jack Thompson Case Won't Bow Out; Hearing Set for Oct. 9th

October 4, 2007 -
Despite a flurry of motions by Jack Thompson and even Thompson's attempt to add presiding Judge Adalberto Jordan to the list of named defendants, Jordan has refused to step aside from presiding over the controversial attorney's lawsuit against the Florida Bar.

In an order issued late yesterday, Judge Jordan wrote:
In my opinion, the content of the numerous filings submitted by Mr. Thompson indicate that he has difficulty separating the legal issues in this case from broader social issues on which he has strongly-held beliefs. Mr. Thompson unfortunately appears to believe that every act taken against him, and any judicial ruling adverse to him, are part of a vast conspiracy designed to silence him and destroy him.

Judge Jordan has scheduled a hearing for October 9th at 9:30 AM on motions by the defendants (the Florida Bar and Judge Dava Tunis, the referee in Thompson's Bar disciplinary trial) to dismiss the case.

The judge will also hear from Thompson on a motion regarding the "show cause" order issued from the bench following Thompson's inclusion of gay porn in a docket filing.

Insidiousmrmoo likes gay porn so I dont know why hes talking bad about it

"Dennis McCauley, either you post here the fact, which ou have known for two hours, that Judge Jordan has now stayed the referral of the disciplinary matter to the Ad Hoc Committee, or you’ll wish you did."


Or what you whiny bitch? Are you so delusional that you believe that you can bring repercussions upon Dennis because he won't write what you want him to write. Yeah, good luck with that one.

wow... first the delayed release of Yu-Gi-Oh GX Tagforce 2, then the release of Final Fantasy Tactics - War of the Lions, and now this.

Tuesday is going to be awesome.

Oh, people are seeking to destroy him, no conspiracy though. Conspiracy requires communication and planning before hand. Jack has made so many enemies, done so many stupid things, people want to have him disbarred. They don't need to collaborate. Ol' Whacko Jacko has burned every bridge behind him, and is surprised to find himself stranded on an island.

of course the judge won't bow out.

Why did thompson ever think it would work in the first place?

I'll refer to what has said before (I believe by norm kent) that "if all a lawyer had to do to get the judge removed was to make him a defendant in the current case, then lawyers in general would be able to pick and choose their judge, which is not what the legal system is about" (I'm paraphrasing here)

And so it begins..

Oct 9th? Did they just speed up what he was trying to delay? Ow!

Well now it seems like Jack thompson will have lots of time to search for gay porn in the not to distant future.

Please someone who is a lawyer in Florida, cant we sue Jack Thompson for being a public Nuisance. I want to have head deep in litigation so that when he craps he craps on important legal documents.

Please lets sue thompson for being a public nuisance. we can start a fund like they did with flower for jack thompson.

@ Andrew McGregor

Its not like JT is taking the "place" of the "leading" anti-game crusader. Him being out of the picture would not suddenly leave a vacuum that needs to be filled. In fact, I would argue the likes of Leland Yee and David Walsh are the polite, more civil anti games personalities.

At this point, it is less and less about the games and more about watching a mentally ill man ruin his life.

Don't expect a real game-related JT story to break until near the release of Manhunt 2 and/or Mass Effect (lesbian sex).

@Norm,

Thanks for the info, as they say, Fame makes a fickle master.

That whole 'You started it' thing actually was a bit creepy...

@Norm Kent

"to quote the Bible he likes to say he believes in but never seems to live by,"

Couldn't have said it better myself.

@Baggie

If only...he'll probably do it more if anything, and blame us for it. After all, there's a massive conspiracy against him.

How much ammunition do we collectively have? It seems a shame not to use it in sheer happyness when JT is actually disbarred.

Fire it at the sky!!!!!!11one

Man Jack you sound like that ex-girlfriend that wont leave Dennis alone.

I guess all the gay porn surfing has been getting to ya.

Chill out and have some hot coffee.

@gp

at least hes not calling you sweetie anymore

i wonder what he meant by "youll wish you did"

hmmm is that a threat little man

"Dennis McCauley, either you post here the fact, which ou have known for two hours, that Judge Jordan has now stayed the referral of the disciplinary matter to the Ad Hoc Committee, or you’ll wish you did."

So now you're the only one in the country that can make threats anymore? What happened to all the others you said you'd 'get'?

And Dennis isn't an internet drone, stalking your life. He has a LIFE, and he'll update HIS blog whenever HE finds it convenient. Not whenever you feel like it. Shut the hell up.

Translation for those of you who don't speak Miami Jack:

Hey Jack,

Being a complete prat and threatening people to post information that they have known for "2 hours" is not a requirement by law for GP or any journalist. Guess what? You just told people yourself by commenting here (or get your own damn website, if anyone will bother to read it). And guess what else? Dennis isn't your fucking slave!

Noone is at your beck and call and if you don't like the idea that press and journalists will post and write things in their own goddamn time, then publish your own hourly newspaper.

I hereby revoke my previous comment, which held concern for your mental health and your families well being by your continual and ultimate self-destruction. You treat people like crap and you deserve no pity. To paraphrase 'The Royale Family'; "Christian? My arse!"

@Shoehorn O'Plenty

Well, I remember clearly that he used to tell gamers to "go to hell more quietly". I'm admired that something like that hasn't showed up around here anymore, despite the deserved level of bashing he's been taking from us. For someone who resorts to foul language and temper tantrums as often as JT does, and that much pressure, I'd say he could spit the cuckoo bird from his mouth at any moment, in a very Looney Tunes kind of way, and fall in catatonia, or murderous rampage then tell it was GTA. Probably the latter.

@DarkTetsuya

ROFLMAO at the dictionary.com idea, we should e-mail them immediately :D

I have to agree that disbarment won't likely curtail Jack's insane, attention-whoring behavior and may likely make him worse than he was before he was disbared. It's actually the legal profession and the public that'll benefit more from an outcome of bisbarment when that comes about. But I wouldn't be surprised if it caused a major shift in Jack's attention and his crusade ceased to be the destruction of violent video game makers and distributers and, instead, became the Florida Bar and anyone and everyone who he believes contributed in any way to his being bisbared.

However, maybe someone close to and concerned about Mr. Thompson will take his disbarment for the obvious sign which it is that the man desperately needs some kind of professional help and can exert enough influence over him to quitely lead him away from the public spotlight and towards that help.

@ chuck

There's been numerous times he's 'threatened' both T2 post-settlement and judges in his career already. Remember that article a few weeks back where he was having a row with some T2 rep and he spouted several of his 'you'll live to regret it' lines?

"In my opinion, the content of the numerous filings submitted by Mr. Thompson indicate that he has difficulty separating the legal issues in this case from broader social issues on which he has strongly-held beliefs. Mr. Thompson unfortunately appears to believe that every act taken against him, and any judicial ruling adverse to him, are part of a vast conspiracy designed to silence him and destroy him."

seperating legal issues from social issues... thats an accurate point actually.

In other words, Jack: Nice try, no banana.

Beyond pwnd. As IGN would say, BEYOWND. Kiss your law license goodbye Jack.

P.S. Hooah!

Dennis:

Quick note - The link on the PDF isnt working.

Dennis :

what Chuma said.
404 alert!

So out of the three court cases he is involved in:

He has dropped the Kotaku case (so named by GP) -
It is looking very much as if this case will be dropped on the 9th -
That just leaves the disciplinary case against him. So with both of his ludicrous stalling tactic cases gone, he seems pretty much done. The referral to the Grievance committee by Judge Adalberto only does more to add to the disciplinary case, as it is another example of Thompson's inexcusable unprofessional behaviour.

I can't wait!

which was the case where he tried to Subpoena George Bush & his brother?

C'tri: Wasn't that this one? I dunno, I really can't keep up anymore.

I can't help but chuckle when I read the conclusions that the judges come to about Jack. "Believes everything is part of a vast conspiracy against him..."

I just marked my calendar! I can't wait to see what happens to this douche.

When's the hearing to ban him from being a lawyer? It's kind of overdue.

Blage : Yes, although if you look at things over the past, its a fair conclusion to reach, every time someone says something critical, they're immediately denounced with whatever stereotype JT can bring to bare.

I hope Jack Thompson follows his own advice, picks up a lawyer game, and gets really good at it fast.

I just hope someone films it like the other hearing...so fun to watch.

If a judge were required to recuse whenever a litigant threatened to sue him, disgruntled parties would be able to forum shop by the simple expedient of filing a civil action against the presiding judge.


I am so glad that the judge is seeing right through Thompsons actions. It makes the whole thing move along smoothly.

HOAAH! Indeed!

Jack is a bully, but it looks like someone is calling his perpetual bluff.

Is it just me, or does the judge sound like he feels sorry for JT in parts of this? I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just wondering if I'm the only one who sees that.

I know I'm personally worried. Jack's been pulling out all the stops on this. He's clinging to his license. I'm wondering how much it'll affect him to lose it.

Will there be a live feed. Heh heh >:D

I want a transcript! I'll pay monies for it... Or muffins. Whatever I have more of.

I'll take a muffin.

Num num num.

Dennis was just missing the /legal/ in the link on the front page.

I don't have to work on Monday (Columbus Day). I was going to use one of my stored holidays and take tomorrow off to enjoy a well-earned 4 day weekend. I am heavily considering working tomorrow and taking Tuesday off to drive to Miami (I live in Orlando).

Hmmm...decisions decisions....

Oh, and by the way, Jack... take a good look at that order the Judge issued. See that? That's what a *real* legal document looks like. Notice how it's professional and follows a clear path of logic? And how different it is from your ranting, blog-like venom?

Maybe when you're all grown up, *you* can file legal documents like that too! Won't that be nifty? And you'll be able to point to it and say 'I did that all by myself! I'm a big boy now!', and it'll be the proudest moment of your life.

So, basically Thompson acts like a school yard Bully (pun intended), and the Judge slaps him down for it. Good for Judge Jordan!

Jack, will you never learn? These Judges have forgotten more about the law than you ever knew.

@flettz:

Thanks for the correct link! Thompson just got the legal smack laid down on him... The judge pretty much blasted everything he had using *logic* and *case law*, two things Thompson has a lot of difficulty with.

My only regret about this whole thing is that it's not on CourtTV. =)

Thompson's legal career is over and there's nothing he can do about it :p .

please someone just but JT out of his missery...He's made himself a living joke. I personally will make sure JT, after this whole embarasment will never be on any talk show news broadcast spewing his lies.

This feels relevant:
