Over a year ago, Florida Judge Dava Tunis recommended permanent disbarment for Jack Thompson. Today, the case reached a pivotal point: Jack Thompson is officially disbarred, effective 30 days from now.

Jack Thompson has also been ordered to reimburse the Florida Bar with fees amounting to nearly $44,000!

The Court approves the corrected referee's report and John Bruce Thompson is permanently disbarred, effective thirty days from the date of this order so that respondent can close out his practice and protect the interests of existing clients. If respondent notifies the Court in writing that he is no longer practicing and does not need the thirty days to protect existing clients, this Court will enter an order making the permanent disbarment effective immediately. Respondent shall accept no new business from the date this order is filed.

Yes, yes, yes! Yes! Yes! Give it to me! Yes! I read this earlier today at Kotaku but yes! Haha! The world will be a better place without JT. Go back to playing GTA IV Jacky, cuz you'll never get it banned now. And yeah, I'd save up if I were you, $44,000 is pretty hefty.

yeah although he has a reputation now, so i think people will know who he is etc...

perhaps the whole world should collaborate on this one, and ban him.

He will find other ways I can guranatee it, he may not be able to do his lawyer stuff but he will probably still campaign against IV and other games too although this is a good news.

Seeing the words 'Jack Thompson officially disbarred' on the homepage was, for me, a definite 'Holy Shit!' moment.

While I'm certain that this probably won't stop him 'fighting the good fight' (plus there'll probably be another bible-bashing, self-righteous hypocrite ready to fill Thompson's shoes), I intend to enjoy this moment of victory on behalf of all of us who've had to put up with this bastard over the years.
