No matter how much we try to avoid Jack, he just keeps doing things that make you raise your eyebrows, scratch your head and say "What?"
In an apparent case of pot vs. kettle, Jack Thompson has filed a complaint against Orlando City Attorney Maryanne Downs for making a disparaging remark about a judge on her personal blog, according to an item in the Orlando Sentinel. Downs also happens to be president-elect of the Florida Bar, the body that disbarred Thompson from practicing law last year.
According to the Sentinel:
According to Thompson, Downs linked to a column written by Orlando Sentinel talk-about-town columnist Scott Maxwell that was critical of Gov. Charlie Crist's judicial appointment of Michael Rudisill. On her blog, Downs described the column as "a thoughtful (and cogently written) story about another political hack being appointed to the bench by Governor Crist, possible because of the changes to our judicial nominating system back in 2001.”
