Supreme Court On Jack Thompson Appeal: No Thanks

Illustration for article titled Supreme Court On Jack Thompson Appeal: No Thanks

Jack Thompson's appeal of his enhanced disbarment from the Florida Bar hit a bit of a snag on Monday, as the Supreme Court refused to hear his case.

The court's decision not to grant Thompson a writ of Certiorari was pretty much a given, considering such a grant is reserved for only the most important cases that could change the face of law as we know it. Jack's case appeared in a long list of cases denied such measures in a list of orders released Monday.


Thompson, however, has not yet begun to fight.

In response to [GamePolitics'] speculation that "the... decision almost certainly ends Thompson's fight to have his permanent disbarment overturned," - Not at all. I have four more options, all better than this one. This was the longest of shots. All four of the others are much, much shorter shots. Stay tuned. As Winston Churchill implored: "Never give in. Never, never, never, never, never."

Powerful words indeed, though I believe that if Sir Winston Churchill were alive today and knew all the facts of this case he'd make an exception.

Any Lawyers here? Just wondering what kind of problems Jack would face if he simply took a bar exam/etc. for one of the other 49 states (and DC) where he is NOT banned for life.

Seems to me that'd be 50 other backup plans.
