The Bar Trial of Jack Thompson (Part 1): Accused of Case-Fixing, Alabama Lawyer Fires Back at Thompson

As previously reported by GamePolitics, Miami attorney and video game industry nemesis Jack Thompson underwent a career-threatening, nine-day trial on Florida Bar misconduct charges late last year.

As might be expected, the proceedings before Judge Dava Tunis produced no small amount of sparks. A ruling on the Bar’s case against Thompson has not yet been issued by the Judge. Her decision is expected next month.

In the meantime, Thompson has filed a suit under Florida’s False Claims Act against Judge Tunis as well as six justices of the Florida Supreme Court, alleging that written loyalty oaths required under state law were not properly completed, thus invalidating any rulings they might make – including, presumably, any ruling in the Thompson Bar trial. The false claims case is pending.

Although GamePolitics was unable to cover the Thompson Bar trial in person, we have obtained transcripts of the testimony provided by five prosecution witnesses, each of whom relates in some way to Thompson’s ongoing crusade against violent video games. Included within the transcripts is Thompson’s cross-examination of the witnesses. Some other prosecution witnesses whose testimony did not relate to video game issues were judged to be outside the scope of this GamePolitics investigative report and their testimony will not be included in these articles.

Aside from his own multiple days of testimony, Thompson presented no additional witnesses. GamePolitics does not have transcripts of Thompson’s testimony, although we are working to acquire his closing argument. Thompson was offered the opportunity to comment on the Bar trial for this series, but declined to do so. He also declined GP’s request to provide the text of his closing argument.

In the first installment of this multi-part series, today’s edition of GamePolitics will examine the dramatic testimony of Clatus Junkin, an attorney and former judge from Fayette, Alabama. Junkin was called as the first witness against Thompson by Florida Bar prosecutor Sheila Tuma on November 26th, 2007.

By way of background, Junkin’s name first surfaced on GamePolitics in November, 2005. At the time, Jack Thompson was representing the families of two police officers and a police dispatcher murdered by 18-year-old Grand Theft Auto player Devin Moore in 2004. Devin Moore was convicted of the rampage killings in August, 2005 and now sits on Death Row in Alabama. Strickland vs. Sony, a wrongful death lawsuit filed byThompson on behalf of the victims’ families seeks $600 million from Take Two, Rockstar, Sony, Wal-Mart and GameStop.

In a surprise decision issued on November 18th, 2005 Alabama Circuit Court Judge James Moore (no relation to Devin Moore) revoked Thompson’s pro hac vice (visiting) right to practice law in Alabama, essentially throwing him off the case. Not long afterward, Thompson sent a letter to Alabama’s Judicial Inquiry Commission in which he suggested that Clatus Junkin had claimed that he could fix cases before Judge Moore:

…We had heard going into this civil case, before it was even filed, that a particular Western Alabama lawyer had to be part of our litigation team or Judge Moore would not give us a fair hearing… This lawyer himself claims, openly, that ‘Judge Moore will not allow you to survive summary judgment if I am not on the case…’

The case-fixing allegation was raised again during Thompson’s Bar trial where Junkin, under oath, denied Thompson’s charge. On cross-examination, Thompson and Junkin sparred over the case-fixing issue. Surprisingly, it appears from the testimony that Thompson and Junkin may have had had some early cooperative discussions in regard to assembling the Strickland vs. Sony legal team. At least, that’s how Junkin portrayed it. He testified that he helped Thompson reach an agreement to represent one of the families involved in the suit.

(GP: The following quotes are excerpted from 43 pages of testimony involving Clatus Junkin which took place in Miami on November 26th, 2007. Junkin "CJ" is under cross-examination by Thompson "JT")

JT: Do you have a personal relationship with Judge Moore?

CJ: In a rural circuit, everyone has a personal relationship with the circuit judge. We don’t live in a large city… everyone will know everybody…

JT: …I encouraged you to file a complaint [against me], didn’t I?

CJ: …I’ve never met you… and yet you created more problems for me probably than any other single individual that I’ve ever known about…

JT: Do you know I represented all three familes [of Devin Moore’s victims]?

CJ: At that time [early 2005], I’m not sure you did because you came to me – you seemed to never have represented the [slain Officer James] Crump family until after I became involved in the case…

JT: Do you know how much money I have earned from all these video games cases?

CJ: No.

JT: Would it surprise you to know it’s zero?

CJ: Well… Don’t say you’re doing it for the good of the community.

JT: I shouldn’t say that?

CJ: You were very much interested in the amount of money that was going to be collected… because you did not want to retain me for 10 percent… you thought that was an outrageous sum…

JT: Did you refer in that phone call [with me]… to your relationship with Judge Moore?

CJ: You asked me what my relationship with Judge Moore was… [Judge Moore and I] do not socialize… we are cordial…

(GP: Judge Moore once also worked for Junkin and eventually succeeded him as circuit court judge)

JT: Do you recall my cursing at you?

CJ: I do not recall you cursing…

JT: In fact, I told you to "go fuck yourself," didn’t I?

CJ: You may have…

JT: I can assure you I said that… Do you recall any harsh words or any reason for harsh words between you and me?

CJ: No. I thought you were being right nice that day. You were very solicitous… [Two local attorneys] had the Crump case and you felt a real need to have all three cases. You told me how much more it would mean and you’d be in control of the case. You’d be able to control the media, that you could handle the whole thing…

JT: So your testimony is that you’re the reason why the Crumps joined the case?

CJ: I’m the reason that – yes, at that time…

(GP: Thompson and Junkin also sparred over the wishes of the slain police officers’ families in regard to whether Devin Moore should have gotten the death penalty during his criminal trial. For clarity’s sake we should make it clear that neither Clatus Junkin nor Jack Thompson had any involvement in the criminal trial of Devin Moore.)

CJ: …I guess if [the families] thought they were going to get a billion dollars, maybe they thought… that could salve the wound and maybe the right thing would be done because [the murders were] actually this video’s fault and not this young fella’s fault…

JT: So how –

CJ: So, you’re the man who’s going to punish the video company, put the video company out of business…

(GP: Nearing the end of his testimony, Junkin lashes out at Thompson over the case fixing allegations)

CJ: I despise you… You understand that?

JT: Yes, I understand that. Thank you for admitting that it colors all of your testimony.

CJ: No, it doesn’t color any of my testimony…

GamePolitics will present additional testimony from the Jack Thompson Bar trial in coming days.

Next: Alabama Judge James Moore

    I have to admit that Thompson’s testimony actually caused my jaw to drop. It’s not as though I had much respect for the man, but I had thought he would at least have some basic dignitiy in a court of law. Volunteering the information that you cursed and swore at another man is not exactly a positive character reference, nor is admitting your colossal failure as an attorney.

    Whereas I’ve traditionally thought that he was simply ill-informed, but well intended, I’ve begun to seriously regard Mr. Thompson as little more than egomaniacal, hungry for attention and with delusions of grandeur.

    There aren’t that many to be honest, and for the main part they appear to be supplying information or filling in gaps of knowledge that would already be apparent to those present such as who the charges would be filed against, or shortening long statements, such as naming all the families involved in the Moore case and instead abbreviating it down. Saves on wear and tear on the fingers.

    That said, it’s a pity the full details aren’t openly available.

Thompson is currently crashing and burning, the only reason people aren’t already celebrating his disbarment is because he has a knack of using loopholes to get off on technicalities, rather than take responsibility for his actions, but I really do think that there’s no way out for him this time.

    I was having a terrible day. I made a couple minor screw-ups in my Mock Trial practice during a cross examination I conducted and was beating myself up. “I tripped over a word,” I thought. “I didn’t word that question tightly enough.” “I am an IDIOT,” I thought, and continued to be depressed for the next two hours.

    Then I got on Facebook, saw the update for GP, and immediately came to this site to read Jack Thompson’s cross examination.

    And now I feel better.

    At least I didn’t drop the F bomb in front of the Court of Appeals justice I did my practice round in front of today. And that was a FAKE case for an intrascholastic competition that I was practicing for. THIS is a portion from a REAL cross in a REAL trial in front of a SUPREME court! My case is FAKE, and I didn’t embarass myself like that.

    I know it was a pain to type all that out, but I hope it eases the pain in your poor, cramped, journalistic fingers to know that you made a discouraged 3L law student happier today. (Sad for the legal community at large, of course, but happy that I’m holding myself to a higher standard than some!)

    It’s the 8th circle I’d say going by the summary in wikipedia

    In fact given that there’s a sub-circle for hypocrites and others for ‘fraudulent advisors’, I’d say he may have to spend time commuting or possibly be halved to get both punishments at once.

    Still, the punishments aren’t mutually exclusive, the fraudulent advisors are sheathed in flame and the hypocrites are forced to walk endlessly whilst wearing gold gilted leaden cloaks. Presumably the two could combine if the demons can make flame that scorches flesh but doesn’t melt lead.

The title of said book should be “World’s Dumbest Legal Moves”. It would be found in the comedy section next to those “World’s Dumbest Criminals” books. It’d make a heckuva lot more money than his last book or any of his lawsuits. And since he has shown he is pretty much in this for only two things, 1.) Money, 2.)

    @chuck —

    Your reasoning is not sound. From Junkin’s comments he HAS suffered damages to his reputation attributable to Jack’s comments. If the allegation is thrown out there, even by a deranged person like Thompson, it has to be taken seriously. On top of that, there are those that will question his relationship with Judge Moore because of that. “We” do not believe Thompson. That does not mean that other people follow suit or see through his lies.

    Also consider that Thompson didn’t keep these comments contained to court or bar documents. He blasted them out in press release after press release for the whole world to see.

    Junkin has a fair shot and gaining compensatory and punitive damages in this case should he choose to file. I doubt the statute of limitations has passed yet, and he could be biding his time based on what happens in this case.

    And this would not be the first time Jack loses a defamation case. Norm Kent won a $10k settlement against him some years ago.

    He’s a private practice attorney in, by his own admission, a very small community who now has a claim of being a “case-fixer” hanging over his professional reputation. If I was a plaintiff with a case before Judge Moore, the very last attorney I’m going to hire to represent me is Clatus Junkin. And because it’s a small circuit, there probably aren’t too many other Circuit Court judges besides Judge Moore and therefore plenty cases before him.

    So basiclly write a horrid book that cites “studies from Harvard” cite things that hve no bases in reality no matter what they may be.

    Then sue a random person/company/police department for something that they have no control over.

    Then say “I predicted [insert event] it was in my book!” when theres no such chapter?

    After all that is said and done figuratively call a state bar a bombed out building while camparing them to Heroshima, while under trial deciding my future law career?

    Did I miss any other steps? Man Tack is ripe for entertainment, I say we make a movie about his life. Call it “Tack Jhompson: The Take Three story” Working title of course.

    Junkin wouldn’t get very far with a libel claim, because he’d have to show he was damaged by the allegation. Since no one actually believes Jack Thompson, I doubt any damages were incurred. Jack’s permanent disbarment certainly seems a sufficient remedy for Junkin and any of the other interested parties.

    That testimony was just bizarre. This was testimony in open court, even, not a deposition. The FL bar’s representative was probably trying to avoid laughing uncontrollably at this train wreck of a cross examination.

    Does GP laugh anymore when going through Jack Thompson news? I and others are eternally amused by his antics–but I imagine those that try to cover him (or in this case, get covered by him, under the volume of press releases) would eventually get tired of it, and no longer even muster a chuckle over such comedy gold as a court transcript.

    I don’t think Junkin ever filed a complaint (certainly not in Florida) against Thompson. The complaint Jack currently defends against was filed by Judge Moore.

    Jack’s “I encouraged you to file a complaint [against me], didn’t I?” question probably goes to some kinda “If I didn’t do anything wrong, why would I encourage you to file a complaint against me?” argument.

    So why are people afraid of someone competent filling Jack Thompson’s shoes? In my mind, someone competent is someone who would actually pay attention to opposing points of view and take them into consideration, rather than painting his or her viewpoint as THE TRUTH, something which you cannot disagree with and still be considered sane.

    Too few people who fit that definition of competence, unfortunately. Or if there are more, they don’t speak up anywhere nearly enough.

    It’s actually not surprising he did something like this. He’s done stupid stuff in court. During that whole Bully fiasco when he was brought in for disciplinary stuff he brought with him a poster board with, I think, the Bill of Rights printed on it that he had propped up on a table and kept pointing to and holding up for the Judge to see….while the Judge was directly addressing him. Someone else here might remember the specifics about that particular episode better than me.

    Jack’s correct when he says that Judge Junkin’s admission that he despises him colors the Judge’s testimony. It does. In shades of Truth.

    There are precious few who’ve had the unpleasure of up-close-and-personal interaction with Jack Thompson and don’t despise him. Ask anyone, from Uncle Luke to Strauss Zelnick.

    Judge Junkin’s admission is prefectly consistent with the facts of the matter and therefore, in my opinion, tends to corroborate the rest of his testimony. Matter of fact, if he testified to not despising Jack, I’d rasie a skeptical eyebrow.

    Nice to see that CJ did point out Jack Thompson’s greed regarding the money he wanted to rake in with such cases. And like others have said, what about the “debate” tours, or the money you expected/were-going to make if you WON?

    Not to mention all those bills you tried passing, or that such money would actually would go to realistically addressing problems like school violence and bullying(and like unrelated lawsuits are the best way of going about this…)… Sure high financial figures make companies think, but just where is that cash going to go?

    Actually, a complete transcript link would be appriciated. Instead of a musical, I’m thinking more of a made for TV movie. The only problem is that in light of the Dead Rising/Dawn of the Dead legal battle going on right now, I think a made for TV movie about JT would run afoul of The Pink Panther copyrights. Just because we swap the hero with the villian doesn’t mean they will let us get away with that level of bumbling.

    What I’m failing to see is what Jack was attempting to prove with this line of questioning.

    Also, I love the legal maneuver of “Your honor, the witness of the prosecution doesn’t like me so their sworn testimony is obviously wrong.” Jack, if everyone who didn’t like you lied all the time, this would be Bizzaro World, where everyone talks in negatives.

    Also, the amount of obscenities his mouth spews in his self styled crusade against obscenity is rediculous. He uses words in public that he tried to have 2LiveCrew arrested for.

    JT: Do you know how much money I have earned from all these video games cases?

    JT: Would it surprise you to know it’s zero?

    There are two possible explanations.

    1. Because you had your pro hac vice license revoked and couldn’t continue practicing law in Alabama. Hard to make money on cases you can’t take part in.

    2. If this extends to the larger set of cases he’s had beyond the scope of those in Alabama… hard to make money on cases you sabotage and then subsequently lose.

    GP: While I can’t address JT’s other legal activities, there’s a reason why number is zero. The cases aren’t succeeding.

    There was a case filed after Columbine, but I don’t believe he had a role. That case lost. There was a case filed in Paducah, KY following a school shooting. JT had that one. It lost. There was one in, I believe, TN, some kids shot at people driving down the interstate. He had that one, at least for a while. I believe the plaintiffs dropped the case… There is the Alabama case. Still ongoing, but he was booted. He is part of a New Mexico case, which was tossed recently but an appeal has been filed.

    So… no winners, no fees…

    JT: Do you recall my cursing at you?

    CJ: I do not recall you cursing…

    JT: In fact, I told you to “go fuck yourself,” didn’t I?

    CJ: You may have…

    JT: I can assure you I said that… Do you recall any harsh words or any reason for harsh words between you and me?

    Now if I was the opposing side, I would just start using character evidence because that should be enough to destroy Jack Thompson. He has shown all the character traits of being vindictive and using the courts for his own agendas. I still cant believe he lasted this long as an attorney (although I believe he only lasted this long because he isnt quite well known as Elliot Spitzer, Mike Nifong and other high profile attorneys). Now I m second guessing myself for not going for my law degree and passing the bar in florida.

    I wonder if they started showing all his TV appearances and public emails? I also wonder if they will call him out for his blatant lies and factual errors on those pubic accessible mediums? I wonder if his “Figuratively” will come into play? I know if I was the opposing Jack Thompson I would use that against him. Now I got a clip in My mind of Jack Thompson doing his Rants after using his own “figuratively” treats against him.

    Too bad we cant get tickets to this trial. It should be recorded and broadcasted, maybe a PPV it would be great television.

    I wonder if any TV programs will be making parodies of this?
