Jack Thompson Questions Judge, Walks Out of Court
Jack Thompson, the lawyer perhaps best known for his rants against Grand Theft Auto and video game content, today faced a disciplinary hearing before the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida. Well, he was supposed to face a hearing. Instead, Thompson reportedly questioned the judge's authority to try the case, filed an objection, then walked out of the court room.
Before walking out of the courtroom, Thompson filed what he called "Thompson's Formal Objection to June 4 Sanctions Hearing." In the rambling, 4,500-word objection, Thompson questioned Tunis' ability to preside at his hearing, calling her incompetent and arrogant and threatening to have her removed from office "in the days and weeks ahead." He also went on to call the people run The Florida Bar fascists and denied that he was involved some sort of "petty culture war."
