Jack Thompson is a bona-fide Florida jackhole who loves nothing more than to scold people for doing things he finds immoral. He's the worst kind of person--a bully who gets off on abusing his power. So it was with great enjoyment that I discovered, via Riptide 2.0, that Thompson is in deep doo-doo.
Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Dava Tunis, the referee in Thompson's disbarment proceedings, rejected the Florida Bar's recommendation of disbarment for ten years.Oh, ouch. Thompson is the kind of guy who would excuse his own unethical conduct because he's pursuing some higher purpose. I love it when those people go down.
How about, she suggested, permanent, non-negotiable disbarment? And a fine amounting to more than $43,000?
