Jack Thompson's Bar Tab

The good news for Jack Thompson is that the judge presiding over his professional misconduct case before the Florida Bar says he should be acquitted of four of the charges against him. The bad news for the crusading attorney is that a total of 31 charges were being considered, so the judge is recommending the Florida Supreme Court find Thompson guilty on no fewer than 27 charges. These charges stem from Thomson's actions during three cases, two of which relate to video game violence, and the folks at GamePolitics who feverishly follow such things have neatly summarized the Florida Bar offenses for which the judge has recommended a verdict of guilty:
        • Knowingly making a false statement of material fact or law to a tribunal
        • Knowingly disobeying an obligation under the rules of a tribunal
        • Communicating the merits of the case with a judge before whom the proceeding is pending
        • Using means that have no purpose other than to embarrass, delay or burden a third person
        • Engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation
        • Engaging in conduct in connection with the practice of law that is prejudicial to the administration of justice, including to knowingly or through callous indifference disparage or humiliate litigants or other lawyers
        • Making statements that the lawyer knows to be false or with reckless disregard as to the truth or falsity concerning the qualifications or integrity of a judge

Straight out of a lawyers handbook. Which lawyer doesn't do this?
