Jack Thompson Out On His Ear

Controversial Miami-based attorney Jack Thompson has been removed from a lawsuit filed by the families of two slain police officers and a police dispatcher against Sony, Rockstar Games, and game retailers. Furthermore, the judge in the case revoked Thompson’s license to practice law in the state of Alabama citing Thompson’s behavior as the cause of the sanction. In our previous coverage of the trial, we reported that Thompson had voluntarily withdrawn from the case because he felt that the "other side [meaning the trial defendents] wants to make me the issue." However, Judge Moore, the case’s presiding jurist, issued a stinging 18-page report in which the judge rejected Thompson’s claim of voluntary removal and stated that Thompson was effectively thrown off the case for actions "before this Court [that] suggest that he is unable to conduct himself in a manner befitting practice in this state." Furthermore, Moore has referred Thompson’s conduct to Disciplinary Commission of the Alabama Bar for "appropriate action." Such actions could potentially include complete permanent disbarrment from the practice of law in the state of Alabama. The removal of Thompson from the case does not necessarily represent the end of the trial, as his long-time associate Ray Reiser will assume the role of lead counsel for the case’s plaintiffs. Not one to take such things lying down, Thompson fired back at Judge Moore by claiming the the judge "has violated... The Alabama Canons of Judicial Ethics by his unfortunate, improper, and prejudicial acts in this case, at the expense of three bereaved Alabama families." We will continue to keep you informed on the status of this case as developments warrant.
