Jack Thompson sues Facebook for $40M - Facebook, games - ARN
What a baby. No wonder no one listens to him.
What gets me is the amount. If someone hurt my feelings why would I need 40 Million to make me feel better. A tenner would be more than enough
...and this is what's wrong with our legal system today. Too many frivolous law suits like this clogging up the system.
We better be nice the crazy man.. The dumbass might sue US because we mocked his moronic ass..
Even being disbarred, he's still suing people.
Someone must not have accepted his friend request
Oh Jack Thopson, you crazy bastard, you.
I'd sue too if I got called names and harassed over the internet.
"You called me a what? A n00b? LAWSUIT! I WANT 500 BILLION DOLLARS TO COVER MY HURT FEELINGS!!!"
Unlike our President, attacks on Jack Thompson are not a matter of national security.
That's a lot of money for simple butthurt.
'Hi, I'm Jack Thompson and i'm a douchebag'
I wonder if we could get a bunch of people together for a class action lawsuit against Jack Thompson for portraying players of GTA as sickos and potential murderers. After all, I'm sure many of us have experienced some form of prejudice as a result of his many TV appearances.
He could actually win this.
He has a point over groups that actually mention physical harm, and the fact that Facebook has now removed some of these groups after legal action has been made means they're a bit scared too.
Having said that... its not like he didn't bring this upon himself...
the worst case scenario is those groups that mention physical harm will be removed. He's not going to get money out of this, much less enough publicity to really do anything.
At the end of the day, he remains a broken man who has had his license yanked and his credibility destroyed.
Actually if you read through the whole article you'll see that it's unlikely that he will win, at least against Facebook. They are not liable for what their members say or do.
As far as Jack goes all together... I think he's just being kept around like a village idiot now.
Yeah, I did read that far, but my gut feeling disagrees with the last bit. After all, this is a world where a woman can successfully sue a store for tripping over her own child.
