    I caught this on GamePolitics last night myself. Every time they have a Thompson post, I search to see if he's commented. Last time I checked, he didn't. I imagine he has his tail between his legs right now.

    Sadly, as GP points out, it's far from over. He's filed lawsuits against the judge, the Florida Bar, the Florida Supreme Court, the Florida Marlins, and anyone else he can think of to try to kill this.

    Did anybody read any of the excerpts from the trial that GamePolitics posted? Sometimes it's quite painful - Thompson says something, other attorney objects, judge says "shut up Jack." Rinse, repeat.

    No, but thanks for pointing out the obvious and drawing more attention to it.

    I'd feel sorry for him, but I just don't want to.
    He dug his hole, lets see him climb out.

    I think that the Goldberg guy is a parody on Thompson. Afterward the lawyer mission, there's an article on the site of Liberty Tree about him, and it says stuff like "sued matchstick manufacterers for forgetting to put up a warning sign that the product would cause fire if successfully used" and "unsuccessfully sued God when it rained on the day of his parade".

    That's weird, gamepolitics isn't working for me right now. Even the embedded link in the article doesn't work.

    Anyway, yay for Justice!
