Time to work on that resume, Thompson disbarred in Florida

While not pertaining to the Xbox 360 specifically this piece of news is important to gamers who are tired of defending comically-inaccurate statements lobbied at their favorite titles from a certain Florida attorney; or should we say soon-to-be-former attorney. Joystiq reports that the Florida Supreme Court has finally decided to disbar John Bruce (Jack) Thompson after being found guilty of 27 out of 31 violations of professional misconduct by the Bar association.

Documents filed by the court maintain Thompson, "has demonstrated a patter 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."

In response Thompson has filed an emergency motion against seventy-seven defendants including the Florida Bar association, this despite the first filing posed against him that he may only file a motion in the Florida Supreme court through another attorney in good standing with the Florida Bar acting on his behalf. Lawyer or not, we wouldn't expect Thompson to hangup the gaming hate anytime soon.
