Submission + - Supreme Court Declines Jack Thompson Appeal (gamepolitics.com)

eldavojohn writes: Jack Thompson was disbarred last year in Florida putting a halt to annoying lawsuits targeting game makers and the constitutional rights of gamers. Well, he had appealed to the United States Supreme Court (to be heard today) to get this overturned but instead they declined to even hear his appeal. They wouldn't even give him the time to review his appeal so it appears his disbarment for life stands. Florida had declined to file a response to Thompson's appeal and it turns out they didn't need to. Sad day for Jack Thompson but a great day for gamers everywhere.
