Jack Thompson in trouble for "fraudulent" practice

Karma: anti-games attorney recommended guilty for 27 misconduct charges

Here come the karma police! Infamous anti-videogame attorney Jack Thompson, who was once ordered to get a mental check, has been recommended guilty for 27 of 31 misconduct charges, by Florida judge Dava Tunis.

Thompson's campaign against Rockstar Games and GTA is well known, and most recently he called the fourth game, "the gravest assault upon children in this country since polio." He even sent a letter to Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick's MUM.
