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

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.
