Take-Two Sues Jack Thompson

Jack Thompson suing someone would just be another "legal brief" post here, but Take Two Sues Jack Thompson over Manhunt 2, GTA4 is news of that classic "man bites dog" variety. To catch you up, we'll just quote Game Politics' summary of the case:
The suit alleges that Thompson’s public nuisance tactic violates Take Two’s First Amendment rights. Lawyers for the game publisher argue that the Florida statute under which Thompson is seeking to have the games declared as nuisances essentially makes the controversial lawyer “a private attorney general on behalf of the State of Florida.”

Take Two is also seeking to recover from Thompson its attorney fees and other costs incurred related to the pending legal action.

For his part, Thompson criticizes the Take Two complaint in a writ filed with the Florida Supreme Court, and rather dubiously takes credit for a recent shareholder revolt which is expected to result in the firing of CEO Paul Eibeler as early as next week.

While I agree completely that nazism should have been purged from society long ago, so should religion. Religion, pick one, anyone, perhaps bushissm can be exhonorated but other than that, pick any religion, and count the bodies.. which line of thought has been responsible for more deaths, christianity or nazism? judaism or nazism?...

And hey, if you were raised a jew, your beliefs aren't your own either, you were indoctrinated with illusions about somethins as probable as a giang celestial invisible teapot controlling everything in the universe form childhood.

Either way, this isn't a defence for nazism, racism, or any other rediculous way of putting people in quality groups based on race / culture etc. I'm just kind of sick of people attacking one of them while subscribing to another, which has far more deaths attributed to it.
