Judging by the reader figures, Florida ex-attorney Jack Thompson is a popular topic among readers. Given a lifetime disbarment in September 2008 for 27 counts of professional miscondunct, Thompson appealed to the Supreme Court.
Now, these sorts of disbarment appeals happen from time to time. The appeal is first heard by a panel of judges who decide if the appeal will take place. Less than one in 25 are actually permitted so it represented some pretty long odds.
Well, it seems that Thompson doesn’t get to be one of the special snowflakes this time around. I can only wonder what he’s going to do next. I’m pretty sure he’s not going to just let it slide. I can’t imagine why you’d want to be a part of a professional association that doesn’t want you as a member, though.
