Former anti-games attorney Jack Thompson
has paid $42,525 to the Florida Bar, reports GamePolitics
. The figure represents the Bar's cost to prosecute Thompson during his disbarment proceedings
. So, not only was he disbarred, but Thompson ended up paying the people that took away his livelihood.
The real beauty in this story is how the information became public. The Florida Bar didn't leak this -- it was John Bruce Thompson himself that sent out an e-mail this morning, complaining the Florida Supreme Court hadn't yet cashed the check. Even while teetering on the precipice of irrelevance, Thompson still makes a good story.
