DISBARRED!

September 25, 2008 -

In a four-page written order (download here), the Florida Supreme Court today affirmed a referee's recommendation to permanently disbar controversial Miami attorney Jack Thompson.

The action, which takes effect in 30 days, means that Thompson will no longer be licensed to practice law and may not apply for reinstatement. Ever.

In citing a litany of offenses, the Court noted Thompson's extensive pattern of misconduct and cited a "complete lack of remorse." The Court also quoted extensively from the June, 2008 report of Judge Dava Tunis, who served as referee at Thompson's November, 2007 trial on charges brought by the Florida Bar:

In her report, the referee states: Over a very extended period of time involving a number of totally unrelated cases and individuals, [r]espondent has demonstrated a pattern of conduct to strike out harshly, extensively, repeatedly and willfully to simply try to bring as much difficulty, distraction and anguish to those he considers in opposition to his causes.

 

He does not proceed within the guidelines of appropriate professional behavior, but rather uses other means available to intimidate, harass, or bring public disrepute to those whom he perceives oppose him.

Noting that "The Court concludes that the facts, as even more extensively detailed in the referee's report, support the referee's numerous recommendations as to guilt," the justices of the Florida Supreme Court affirmed Thompson's offenses as delineated by Judge Tunis.

Some of these include findings that Thompson made false statements and accusations, repeatedly harassed those he considered opponents, and, while falsely accusing others of "the criminal distribution of sexual materials to minors," himself attached pornography to court filings.

  • [Thompson] made false statements of material fact to courts and repeatedly violated a court order
  • [Thompson] communicated the subject of representation directly with clients of opposing counsel
  • [Thompson] engaged in prohibited ex parte communications
  • [Thompson] publicized and sent hundreds of pages of vitriolic and disparaging missives, letters, faxes, and press releases, to the affected individuals
  • [Thompson] targeted an individual who was not involved with respondent in any way, merely due to "the position [the individual] holds in state and national politics"
  • [Thompson]falsely, recklessly, and publicly accused a judge as being amenable to the "fixing" of cases
  • [Thompson] sent courts inappropriate and offensive sexual materials
  • [Thompson] falsely and publicly accused various attorneys and their clients of engaging in a
    conspiracy/enterprise involving "the criminal distribution of sexual materials to minors" and attempted to get prosecuting authorities to charge these attorneys and their clients for racketeering and extortion
  • [Thompson] harassed the former client of an attorney in an effort to get the client to use its influence to persuade the attorney to withdraw a defamation suit filed by the attorney against respondent
  • [Thompson] retaliated against attorneys who filed Bar complaints against him for his unethical conduct by asserting to their clients, government officials, politicians, the media, female lawyers in their law firm, employees, personal friends, acquaintances, and their wives, that the attorneys were criminal pornographers who objectify women.

The Court also upheld a fine of $43,675 against Thompson.

For his part, Thompson offered his standard-issue bluster, announcing his disbarment in an e-mail which carried the subject line "Now the Fun Begins." Thompson has also filed a request with the U.S. District Court for an emergency stay of the FLSC's order disbarring him.

Re: DISBARRED!

so i guess it's high time the Florida bar gets a bomb shelter, eh?

And do those fines include broken fax machines?

 

lastly... Here's something from Obama to you, Jack Thompson

So...

Why hasn't the man of the week commented yet? Is he banned?

Remember remember the 25th of September. Twas the day Jack Thompson was disbarred.

Re: So...

Yup.  He lost it early last week before this info broke.

Re: DISBARRED!

Jacky boy unlike you I actually show compassion for an enemy although you may have called me every name in the book from druggy to terrorist I would still like to work along side you.

 

So please email your resume to Party City and i'll put in a great word for you, we can use someone a little crazy at work.

Re: DISBARRED!

I read this yesterday but didn't get a chance to comment on it.

Anyways I guess this concludes this sad pathetic excuse for a human being's joke of a career. We should make an example out of him to these watch dog and family groups that we will go after them using everything we can if they try to take away our freedom.

Re: DISBARRED!

So this is why GP wasn't working when I tried to visit last night.

Re: DISBARRED!

Oh, Jack, how we'll miss you.  You're kind of like the little yapping dog in my neighbor's yard.

OK, so we won't really miss you.

All the same, welcome news.  Jack Thompson's far from gone, but much of his bite has been removed.

Re: DISBARRED!

I introduced my viewpoint in a post last night. While I'm glad Thompson's disgraceful behaviour has warranted disbarrment, the time has come to begin a serious dialogue on some important issues:

-Are the ESRB ratings giving the intended result - keeping mature content out of the hands of young children?

-What - if any - are the real social consequences of graphic violence in video games?

-Does the gaming industry have a role to play in dealing with what seems to be a growing problem of compulsive play in the MMO genre?

Again, Thompson's departure from the scene is a breath of fresh air, but it doesn't make these questions go away. Hopefully it just makes reasoned, intelligent discourse possible.

Thanks,

Brad

Re: DISBARRED!

You didn't number, so I will.

1.  No, the ESRB isn't giving the "intended result" for one reason:  Because that's NOT the intended result.  The ESRB is there to INFORM, not DICTATE, to individuals and Parents what is or is not appropriate for their children.  The same is true of the MPAA and the TV ratings system.  The ESRB doesn't REQUIRE anyone to abide by their ratings.  The decision of retailers to follow those ratings in the sale/rental of any product is voluntary.  Merchant associates don't force retailers to have policies either.  The Merchant associations only require a retailer to have a policy for the retailer to be a member of the Merchant association.   Contrary to popular belief, Parents DON'T need to be dictated to.  They only need proper information and resources.  Information and resources already exist.  But Tin-Pot-Dictator-Wannabes want the power to decide FOR individuals and Parents, so they do their best to limit Parent's knowledge of that existing information.

2.  Graphic violence in ANY media format (books, music, video/computer games, movies, TV, etc) are in fact peripheral.  Far more damaging to society is the active teaching of bigotry, hate, justification of abuse, and the general acceptance or fear to report various abusive acts in the schools, homes, neighborhoods and community at large.  The teaching of bigory and hate as "moral acts" in the name of a God.  The attempts to prevent abuse victims from having support systems or claims that verbal and mental abuse because of religious justification is protected speech (which isn't the same as the Right to believe in bigotry and hate without abusing others).  This and many other things have far more direct harmful effects than what one is peripherally exposed to.

3.  Less so than the church (in general since you say the game industry in general) has to deal with the role of select religious groups and their active role in teaching bigotry and hate as a "moral" way of life.  The fact is, not everyone who attends church are exposed to bigotry and hate.  Not everyone that is exposed to bigotry and hate become activists.  Not every activist becomes a violent abuser of others.  Just as not everyone who is exposed to Media X product, sub-catagory X, genre Q, sub-genre P will have reaction XYZ and act PDQ.  The fact is, YOU had a bad reaction to something.  YOU need to stop blaming everything else and take responsibility for that bad reaction, even if it wasn't voluntary.  Even gamblers fighting their addiction know it isn't the horse's fault they became addicted.

Re: DISBARRED!

Thank you for your replies to my posts on violent content and compulsive game play. Yes, I accept responsibility for my choices. I have learned that I cannot set limits on my game play. As a drunk is powerless over alcohol, I am powerless over gaming. And so I finally found the courage to quit eight months ago. Nobody put a gun to my head, forcing me to play, but I do believe the reward structures and open ended game play of today's MMO's are a formula for disaster.

It's interesting to note that one of WoW's load screens encourages players to enjoy their time in the game, but not to forget their real life responsibilities and relationships. (It's been ten months since I played, so I don't remember the wording).

An informal poll. How many would support the following language on retail packaging. Please give a 'Yes' or 'No' with a brief explanation. Thanks in advance for your interest.

Well putting that on a game is about as viable as putting on running shoes: "Excessive running may be hazardous to your health".

Re: DISBARRED!

Excessive eating may be hazardous to your health.

Excessive water may be hazardous to your health.

Excessive truck and bus fumes may be hazardous to your health.

Excessive staying in bed may be hazardous to your health.

 

Of course, there are many things we place warning labels on.  Some seem rather silly. 

Here's an example of government silliness:

NC decided gambling on video poker machines is bad for you.  We must protect the citizens of our state from the bad effects of gambling on video poker machines.  Even police chiefs came out and ranted that video poker players were criminals.  So, the state moved to outlaw it.  Loophole appeared, and it's sorta still legal, but it seems the loophole might be closed soon.

Nevertheless, NC brought in the Powerball lottery.  Oh my gosh!  Gambling is good so long as it's the state and not private citizens who are benefiting from running the gambling system.  It's great!  It's incredible!

The NC lottery website also includes information on being addicted to gambling and links to gambler's anonymous.

Wait...

The lottery is good.

Video poker is bad.

Video poker makes you acriminal.

The lottery is good for the state and so is good for you but might cause addiction, hence it's bad, but it's good for the state so it must be good for you...

I hope no programmers saw that creation of an infinite loop... oh dear.

Anyway, labeling isn't going to protect anyone.  No one buying something like this thinks they are going to be addicted.  If they haven't been addicted to some other product, they won't think "First time for everything".  They'll think "Hadn't happened before, so shouldn't happen this time".

Now, you might put on there "Open ended gameplay involved.  Pace yourself."  Even without "Pace yourself", it still lets a player know about the possibility of a new experience.  Whether it's online or offline, the potential for a single game to have no end may be an experience someone who has played games with endings may not be prepared for.

Still, it won't save every individual who might become obsessed or addicted, no matter how few there may actually be.

Re: DISBARRED!

No, It's true that anything can addict certain people.  However cases like yours can happen, but if we put these signs on video games we'll have to put them on everything.

Re: DISBARRED!

I don't agree with putting that on game packaging, simply because EVERYTHING may be hazardous to your health. Too many drinks will kill your liver. Too much caffene can shut down your body. Even too much water can cause a person to die.

Re: DISBARRED!

Hi there Brad,

While I think your comments in this thread are not relevant to the subject, I still think they are quite interesting. I understand and respect your point of view, but I disagree ont one very important point : accepting the "fact" that you are powerless before something.

A lot of people around me have had problems with a few addictions over the years. Drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, gaming, you name it.

I have seen that all those who "accepted" their addiction (saying it controls them and they are powerless before it) are those who always had the worse problems. Even worse, I believe it gave them an excuse, a kind of confort zone. Something like "If I can't help myself, it is acceptable and even expected that I will fall down again". They will blame the companies, society, anything except them.I have seen people around me thinking like, and they are never at peace. Even with therapy (for some, over 15 therapies), they juste can't get over it. 

The others are doing the complete opposite. They will never accept their addiction. They will never say it controls them. They fight that every step of the way. And it works. It works really well. They accept that they made the choice.  

Even someone really addicted to something has a choice. Usually you are not forcefed your addiction. You choose to drink, to smoke, to play or anything else. YOU make the choice. It means you can say no, and saying no will empower you and make you stronger. 

I think fighting your addiction is the better choice, instead of accepting it. Anyway, you live in a world where your addiction will not dissapear magically. You will see beer and cigarettes at every party. You will see game adds everywhere. Deal with it.   You will be a stronger person for doing it. Of course, it doesn't mean you have to do it alone. Instead of accepting your addiction, accept your responsability over it.

My apologies for any spelling mistakes

Re: DISBARRED!

Sure, and maybe they should put the same warning on all edible items as well: Eating too much cake may be hazardous to your health. Or on condoms: Having too much sex could be hazardous to your health. And don't forget internet porn: Wanking too much could be hazardous to your health.

Blaming video games for being addictive is pointless. Instead of simply branding video games (or any other addiction) as "bad" and avoiding them altogether, it seems to me that it would be more productive to objectively examine the underlying reasons why you allow yourself to become so involved in something that it becomes harmful to your personal life. Being able to enjoy an activity in moderation seems healthier to me than simply cutting it out of your life altogether.

Re: DISBARRED!

actually I read that sex has the opposite effect, at least when STDs aren't involved. But I guess that explains why it says "could" instead of "will"

back to the topic of gaming, when it comes to playing MMO games it just gets too repetitive for me. I quit not because I "needed" to, but because it got boring.

Re: DISBARRED!

Could be hazardous to your health? Are we talking about 85%, 100%-but-you-could-be-the-first-person-who-experiences-no-negative-side-effects, 50% or what?

It reminds me of a joke I think Nightwing said a while ago, the punchline being that everything should be labeled 'may contain nuts' since you can't tell if it a piece of packaged food has nuts or not without actually opening it.

Remember remember the 25th of September. Twas the day Jack Thompson was disbarred.

Re: DISBARRED!

Are the ESRB ratings giving the intended result - keeping mature content out of the hands of young children?

Yes, Check out the FTCs secret shopper report: http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/05/secretshop.shtm any M rated games that get into the hands of kids are given to them by their parents. http://www.theesa.com/facts/index.asp

What - if any - are the real social consequences of graphic violence in video games?

That has yet to be determined. Of course we are still waiting for definitive results from TV and movie violence as well.

Does the gaming industry have a role to play in dealing with what seems to be a growing problem of compulsive play in the MMO genre?

Should the game industry have to be punished for making a good product? Why should the games industry do the leg work for someone's personal problem?

Re: DISBARRED!

I think he just wanted to advertise his site really.

The last one (MMO addiction) is flat out a personal problem.  Some people get addicted to food because it tasts so good, get fat, and tend to have heart problems and die, while the large majority of people understand that food is great, but know when to stop eating.  Same goes for games like MMOs, they are great, but you have to know when to stop.  It isn't that hard, keep a clock by your computer that you can see at all times, set a time that you will quit playing, and quit playing at that time or sooner.  NO only 10 minutes more, or just this one last thing, you are done, if you finish a quest or something 5 minutes before your goal time, then stop there, no more.

If you don't have the self control to not get addicted to these games, then I have to call survivle of the fittest personally.  I feel bad for the families, but there are so many addictive things out there that they could be getting hooked on and dieing from instead.  No addicion is good, but anyone with half of a brain can manage game addition if they want to, all it takes is a little self control.

Re: DISBARRED!

I don't know when to stop eating when I eat something really good.  I eat till I have trouble walking 10 feet and my stomach is bloated.  But I don't eat that much when food is decent.  That's why I'm thin as a stck.

 

Anyway back on topic, I agree with everything you said.

Re: DISBARRED!

Not to sneeze on anyone's banana, but has anyone realised that he is going to play the Jack Thompson card about this? There is a nifty list of reasons why he lost his licence and incurred an unpleasant fine, including [making] false statements of material fact to courts and repeatedly [violating] a court order, but you know what his reaction will be.

Dennis McCauley, Take Two, Blank Rome, the ECA, and the games industry at large destroyed my career with false claims and libel. I am working with the authorities to see that these terrorists are brought to justice.

Or something to that effect. Like the killers he tries to defend, he will refused to take responsibility for his own actions.

Re: DISBARRED!

Yes, that would be the case, but saying that gamers supposedly destroyed his carrer, thats not going to fly.

thats like saying I lost my job because some punks made me look bad.

 

 

the fact of the matter is he will have to try and downplay the whole disbarment thing, which if he tries to email someone, we can just inform that person that he has been disbarred and exactly why.

And now, his spam of a law career is oficially over, pending lawyers in good standing having the good sense to just let him rot. But, man, do I wish I could bold-facedly deny reality like that! It oughtta be fun to see him further the level of assery he has been revealed to possess. Here's to thirty days of watching him scramble like a carton of eggs while, trying desperately to remain on the bar, he puts himself in even worse standing and it slowly dawns on him that it's all over. *deep, satisfied breath* *deep, satisfied exhale* Yep, goooood day.

Re: DISBARRED!

Woo Hoo! Jack's gonna have to find new avenues to market his brand of BS since the bar won't take it anymore. Supermarket tabloids maybe? Politics (God forbid, please?)?

At any rate, I doubt he could still pursue games via the legal avenue, by hiring other lawyers on his behalf. These guys won't be doing the "JT-Crazy way of persecuting video games", since not many lawyers like being disbarred.

Contiune?

And thus the game ends.

I'm recovering from a pretty severe compulsive gaming habit. However, like you, I'm very glad that Thompson has been disbarred. I've written a short piece on this on my blog.

Re: DISBARRED!

We gather here today to pay homage to a lost loved one.

He lived a long, and abused life.  Struggling from day one, and tortured over many, many years.  So promising this great man, this great soul, had been.  Abused and tortured, misused and mistreated.

Mr. Career left behind a loving and caring wife, Mrs. Career.  He also left behind two loving and promising children, his elder child Summer Job and little Afterschool Work.

Mr. Career had attached himself to the wrong person and found himself being torn to shreds by the very person he offered his life and existance to.  Sadly, Mr. Career was plagued by lies and deceit, driving him into a spiral of health problems which finally led to his annihalation.

Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust.

Yes in fact it took the good doctor (err what was the judge's name) to make the final decision to pull the plug on Mr. Career his cremation will take place in 30 days.

Re: DISBARRED!

Mr. Career had been seen by so many specialists.  But it was Dr. Tunis who finally diagnosed the terminal illness that would eventually lead to Mr. Career's passing.

So tragic.

And there will most likely be those who will blame media of all types for the illness.  Those who would feed off this tragedy and use it to their benefit.  Most notably will be the very being that Mr. Career tried to serve and was so brutally abused and tortured by.

Still, there are many who know who is to blame for Mr. Career's demise.  And though the monster, whom Mr. Career attempted to serve, that committed such atrocities against Mr. Career will continue his atrocities without Mr. Career supporting it, we all know that Mr. Career is now in a better place. 

Rest well, Mr. Career.  You've earned it.

prh99The unflattering characterization "They don’t know how to dress or behave." & "‘Games culture’ is a petri dish of people who know so little about how human social interaction..." probably didn't help.10/02/2014 - 1:52am
prh99Probably not many as it was purely a vindictive move. The headline alone was plenty of ammo, but for those that did read and complain..10/02/2014 - 1:42am
Andrew EisenI wonder how many of those who complain about that article actually read past the headline.10/02/2014 - 1:37am
prh99http://intel.ly/1tjh1AH http://bit.ly/1rGPHOY http://intel.ly/Zu6go9 it isn't surprising "Gamers are over" didn't go over very well.10/02/2014 - 1:34am
Papa MidnightCan you parlay that to #WriteAGawkerArticle? The cesspool of horrid crap over there extends far beyond Kotaku.10/02/2014 - 12:34am
Andrew EisenWow! Intel dropped Gamasutra due to GameJournoPros? Over Matt Matthews? The only Gamasutra guy in the group? Who hasn't written a single thing about #GamerGate at the site? Where did you read that?10/02/2014 - 12:32am
Neo_DrKefka#WriteAKotakuArticle "#GamerGate is responsible for breaking millions of Intel powered macbooks after angry SWJ hipsters slam them shut" or "How Toxic Processors from Intel causes sexism. "10/02/2014 - 12:15am
Neo_DrKefkaSo Intel has dropped Gamesutra due to there support of your Gaming News Cabal Fudge. Anti GamerGate article soon? Or like your e-mails are you hoping this narrative dies down soon?10/02/2014 - 12:14am
Andrew EisenWell, time to eat some dinner and work on the Hyrule Warriors guide until bedtime!10/02/2014 - 12:11am
Andrew EisenJust finished my stream. That... could have gone better. Technical issues prevented me from playing a console game so I instead played and bitched about The Walking Dead for two hours. Oh well, the folks watching still seemed to enjoy it.10/02/2014 - 12:09am

quiknkoldAndrew : Mostly I decided there were better people who could explain what was going on, or fight any battles that may come up. so I decided not to talk about it anymore.10/01/2014 - 8:49pm
Andrew EisenI don't recall you promising that. GamerGate is not a taboo discussion here. Anyway, thanks for the link. Very interesting.10/01/2014 - 8:47pm
quiknkoldI know I promised to not talk about Gamergate again, but Intel just pulled sponsership from Gamasutra over it http://techraptor.net/2014/10/01/gamasutra-intel/10/01/2014 - 8:40pm
