Facebook

Oh no. You thought you had heard the last of him, but apparently not. The ever popular ex-attorney Jack Thompson is back to sue those who dare to defy his belligerent beliefs, but this time it’s Facebook that has been unfortunate enough to fall victim to his¬†incessant¬†preaching.

His new found vendetta against the social networking giant stemmed as a result of messages that were found on the site which caused him “great harm and distress,” and he has subsequently filed a law suit of $40 million. Groups such as “Jack Thompson should be smacked across the face with an Atari 2600” were great sources of ammunition.

Oh Jack, you make the Internet so much more invigorating.

Souce: Good Gear Guide

  1. The funny thing is, you can actually sue for psychiatric injury if you can prove that Facebook did cause great harm and distress. Don’t know where that $40 million figure came from though, because I doubt he made that much loss financially as a result of the distress.

  2. I agree Jeff, no idea where that figure came from. I think there should be a calculation for these lawsuits, if your estimation of damages is way out of proportion, your case gets dropped.

    This is just ridiculous.

  3. I’m going to go create an anti Jack Thompson group right now! Help me decide on a name:
    “Jack Thompson: All your games are belong to me”
    “Help! my daughter was raped by video games! – A soapbox story ”
    “Give me attention and money – A Jack Thompson group”
    “Jack Thompson is really Leroy Jenkins”

  4. What about people that wear the “I hate Jack Thompson” T-Shirts?
