Jack Thompson Disbarment Official

GamePolitics has the follow-up on Jack Thompson's disbarment. The one-time crusading attorney has threatened to take this matter to a higher court, but they post an image of this page that indicates now that the 30-day period since the disbarment decision has passed, John Bruce Thompson is "Not Eligible to practice in Florida." Thanks Videogaming247 for this moment of schadenfreude.

Jack will just take his crusade to the people and try to milk them for donations, and the sad truth is they're gullible enough to fall for his asinine rhetoric. He'll become more dangerous because nothing can stop him if he forms a grassroots crusade.

SO can someone tell me why that link, links to a guy named "John Bruce Thompson"? Isn't his name Jack, or did he change it or something.
John/Jack ... Charles/Chuck ... Michael/Mick ... get the picture?

In all reality he is going to move to another state and try to take the bar.

Virtually impossible.
In order to be accepted by the bar you need to pass a character & fitness evaluation. Having been disbarred in one state will pretty much guarantee you fail this in any other state.

Hell, most states require a certificate of good standing for any other bars you're admitted to. Jack won't have one of those, meaning he won't even be able to apply.

Awesome news. I'm replaying through GTA:SA with Hot Coffee as we speak. Hmm? Oh, sorry, have to run. Millie is begging for some more cream.

I'd like to coin a new word. Thompsoned. It means to be brutal irony.

Usage examples:

Bully (to friend): Remember that Nerd I beat up last week?
Friend: Yeah?
Bully: His father BEAT me up good.
Friend: Damn! You got Thompsoned.

Hmmm... might need a little work.

Nah. He's just going to pretend that the disbarment was against the law and that he still is a licensed lawyer.

In other words: he's going to earn his money as an "expert" on Fox News or something like that.

But still: its good to see that sometimes there is justice.

Let this be a lesson to you all... if you're a whore for the limelight and pick a half assed cause to pursue, it will consume you. This guy got his 15 minutes and it ate him up. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Moral of the story... don't be a toxic ahole!

So hilarious:
----------------

The referee has filed a corrected report recommending that respondent, John Bruce Thompson, be permanently disbarred without leave to apply for readmission to The Florida Bar. Respondent submitted a petition for review of the referee's report. The Clerk did not accept the petition for review for filing. This action was in accord with this Court's opinion dated March 20, 2008, which sanctioned respondent for abusive filings and barred him from filing on his own behalf. The sanction opinion provided, in pertinent part: "the Clerk of this Court is hereby instructed to reject for filing any future pleadings, petitions, motions, documents, or other filings submitted by John Bruce Thompson, unless signed by a member in good standing of The Florida Bar other than himself."
