Posted on May 21, 2008, Stephany Jack Thompson Found Guilty of 27/31 Counts of Misconduct- Florida Supreme Court to Rule on the Case in September
Normally I don’t like to talk about JT because of my constant fear of him leaving a snarky comment on my post. This fear, keeps me awake at night, lying there in a cold sweat and just imagining the insane evil glint in his eyes. I am of course being silly, I am not afraid of him in the slightest, I just do not like giving him more Google fodder and adding to his notoriety.
However, since the judge presiding over Thompson in reference to the Florida bar trial has recommended that be found guilty of 27 counts of misconduct -that, my friends is something everyone should be aware of.
According to GamePolitics, Florida Judge Dava Tunis has recommended that JT be found guilty due to his involvement in video game-related cases, particularly Strickland v. Sony in which the attorney blamed Devin Moore’s obsession with GTA as his reason for killing two police officers and a police dispatcher. Not that he was just a bad person all around, but because the game drove him to it.
The charges issued by Tunis will be sent to the Florida Supreme Court by September 2nd, where the judges will make a ruling as well as possible disciplinary action. Tunis will also be presiding over the June 4th disciplinary hearing where possible sanctions against Thompson will be most likely be doled out.
The misconduct recommendations according to GP include:
- 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
Tunis also recommended that Thompson be found guilty on four out of five counts relating to his 2006 attempt to have Rockstar’s Bully declared a public nuisance in a case before Miami Judge Ronald Friedman. An additional two guilty counts stemmed from a non-video game matter.
I wonder what is going to be done about his constant harassment of innocent people? This should also be taken into account because you just don’t harass a woman on Mother’s Day and accuse her of birthing the anti-Christ.
