Infamous florida lawyer Jack Thompson, seen amongst gamers world-wide as the reason why their games have been banned and as an adherent advocate for people who think games are ruining society, has been subjecting developers, producers and the gaming community to various lawsuits, lies and rants since the first Grand Theft Auto game arrived, but now, to every gamer's delight, he has been shunted off of his rampaging path.
The Florida Supreme Court has ordered Mr. Thompson to show, in court, why he has subjected them to his many failed lawsuits and surrounding controversy -
02/19/2008 ORDER-SHOW CAUSE
TO: JOHN BRUCE THOMPSON
It appears to the Court that you have abused the legal system by submitting numerous frivolous and inappropriate filings in this Court.
Therefore, it is ordered that you shall show cause on or before March 5, 2008, why this Court should not find that you have abused the legal system process and impose upon you a sanction for abusing the legal system, including, but not limited to directing the Clerk of this Court to reject for filing any future pleadings, petitions, motions, letters, documents, or other filings submitted to this Court by you unless signed by a member of The Florida Bar other than yourself.
Thompson, irony apparently lost on him that he's taking the court he serves in to court, replied -
This is the single greatest gift that any court has ever given me in my 31 years of practicing law. I shall now, through a new federal lawsuit, deconstruct The Florida Bar ... This court has threatened Thompson. He does not threaten back. He hereby informs this court that he will see it in federal court.
