Jack Thompson was already disbarred in Florida back in September of 2008. 10 months after Florida, that disbarment from the practice of law might just go federal. Judge Federico Moreno of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida has issued a court order to Thompson, directing him to explain why his Florida disbarment should not be extended to the federal level.
To clarify, Thompson's disbarment kept him from practicing law in Florida, the awarding state. However, his license is still admitted in the US District Court.
No specific instance was given to clarify what exactly provoked the judge to issue such an order to Thompson. But it is a fact that Thompson, sent a reply to Judge Moreno, an e-mail wherein it appeared as if he was mocking the Judge:
I make this request/demand because of your prior improper placement of me on a terrorists watch list in retaliation for my sending you a letter about judicial misconduct on your watch. Even the Deputy US Marshals thought that was absurd. They laugh now every time I show up at the courthouse asking, Are you still a dangerous terrorist, Mr. Thompson? Funny stuff.
Now you have entered a show cause order demanding that I explain why you should not disbar me from the federal court, and in doing so you have told me to spend at least $30,000 to make my case in producing documents all of which the Florida Supreme Court has and [can] give you free of charge...
If I get sent to Gitmo as a terrorist, then please send the stuff there. I ll be facing Tallahassee in prayer several times a day as required.
