    I think we should send an email just reading

    "Dear Jack

    Have you ever considered a career in comedy? You're seriously one of the funniest men alive"

    I want to see what happens.

    What if we just...stared at a wall?


    We'd get sued for harassment.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure that eventually Jack's going to sue every living thing on the planet, regardless if it has even HEARD of him, for harassment.

    He seems to think any interaction is harassment. Honestly.

    Soon he will be suing the rain. "I told the rain to stop, judge, but it just kept falling on me!"

    Lawsuit's on hold, for the time being:
    So, how’s that Law 101 class going?

    Federal District Court Judge Paul Huck has dismissed a complaint filed yesterday against Gawker Media, parent company of the popular Kotaku game blog. In his ruling, Judge Huck wrote that controversial attorney Jack Thompson had failed to follow the proper federal court procedure for amending a complaint.

    For his part, Thompson admits his mistake and pleads ignorance (we’ll buy that), citing distractions he says were caused today by the Florida Bar and an unnamed game website which published his home address and phone number.

    Thompson vowed to the Court that he will re-file the Kotaku complaint, this time in accordance with the rules.

    It's not "gravity". Gravity is just vague scientific nonsense, that's why they call it the "theory of gravity". It's just a theory.

    Ooh, I forgot about that. What did he do again?

    He brought a bunch of "visual aids" that basically amounted to BS "stats" about video games and violence when the judge was making his ruling on the injunction that Thompson requested re: selling Bully in Florida. Basically the judge was saying that after seeing the multiple hours long video demonstrating gameplay from Bully that he finds the suit completely without merit and then goes on to say that he's going to have to hand the case off to another judge because Thompson's irrational and childish behavior has made him hate the guy so much that he no longer feels that he can be impartial in deciding the case.

    So basically, the judge was starting to hate Thompson for his behavior and was unable to separate that from the actual arguments of the case, so he felt it wise to recuse himself. But while he was making this statement about how Thompson was being immature and conducting himself like an ass and making a mockery of the legal system, Thompson kept interrupting him and holding up these signs, causing the judge to pause while talking about how much he hates Thompson to tell Thompson to, in essence, shut the fuck up because it's not his turn to talk.

    EDIT: I couldn't remember before, but found it now. Destructiod caught it all on tape although it's super-hard to hear what the judge is saying. Direct link to the YouTube version if your company blocks Destructoid.
