Jack Thompson Leaves Own Hearing, Claims Too Much Violence


Jack Thompson, an anti-gaming attorney representing the families of two police officers and a police dispatcher slain by 18-year-old Grand Theft Auto player Devin Moore, decided to walk out on his own disbarment hearing today before it concluded. This led Dava Tunis, the presiding judge, to recommend an "enhanced disbarment" ruling against him. I'm not sure what that means either, but it must be worse than a "regular old disbarment."

The highlight of the proceedings is Thompson's statement where he called Judge Tunis "incompetent and arrogant" and threatened to have her removed from office "in the days and weeks ahead."

"I am “guilty” of being right and ahead of the curve when it came to Howard Stern and as to Grand Theft Auto. Because I took on Bar complainant, Al Cardenas, the Howard Stern Show is off terrestrial radio and his influence diminished." He continues saying "Because I took on this cop-killing, woman-bashing video game, the Presidential race is now addressing the issue and this particular video game… Try to get me disbarred. Go ahead, do your worst, Referee Tunis. I will continue to do my best."

If he is disbarred, he'll be prevented from applying to practice law for 10 years anywhere in the U.S.
