The anti game lawyer has been disbarred but don't expect him to go without a fight. http://kotaku.com/5054801/thompson-responds-to-disbarment

Still, having been dis-barred makes him look even more dis-reputable. All the more reason to celebrate...

Pretty sure he was disbarred a few weeks ago... good riddance... not that there's any lack of ignorant (mostly) people who are against videogames.

Glad this guy's gone but have heard he is trying to get an injuction. I wonder why he was against games , and so for games makes everything evil. Maybe someone should give jack a beta key for Lbp :p

Must he really lose his lawyer badge? I mean come on, its hard to become a lawyer... all he did was blame the corrupt youth to videogames, was that really bad? I bet a lot of the people who hate him right now would sing a new song if he blamed it on rap and the media and started sueing MTV...

He just did what he thought was right, sympathies Jack... but gamers must do what they have too, to prevent your crazy censoring and banning ideals....

...YEAH! Awesome! Took long enough, if you ask me. His name is in far too many Wikipedia game articles.

And...I'm pretty sure he didn't just do it for moral reasons or the like. I'm pretty sure he did it just for the publicity and "your name in lights!" factor. (Regardless of the type of lights used.) Because, if he did, there was seriously something wrong with him. I think he was just overblown for getting himself known, rather than crazy.

He was against rap long before his anti game stuff and the disbarrement has very little to do with his stance on video games, it was mostly about his conduct.

Yeah I think it wasn't that he was against games that was in disrepute but his conduct in being a lawyer was, but the things he has came out and said of games kinda bewildered me , but I think he's better off without it ^_^

actually, i'd still think he'd be stupid if he sued MTV. censorship is just wrong.

There is a special place in hell for all of us, apparrentely.

(He apparrently told some video game reporter from I think IGN that during an interview in a Gamestop o_0)

Anyway, I never liked censorship no matter what, so yeah, tis good.
