Say what you will of Jack Thompson, at least he always pays his bills. And he sure will do his damndest to let you know about it, too.
To recap, the attorney, notorious for his anti-gaming campaign, was disbarred permanently and ordered to reimburse the courts the legal fees that was used to prosecute him. This totalled up to $43,675.35 US dollars although it was recently reduced to $42,525.27 by the Bar.
Jack, not one to do anything without fanfare, has emailed the Bar about his payment because of concerns that it had not been taken from his account.
Dear Chief Justice Quince:
Please advise today what you and the Court have done with my check for $42,525.27 that was sent you on November 6 to be held in trust by the Supreme Court.
I find today, in talking with my bank, that the check has not been negotiated. I’m not paying any interest on this amount. You all had it from me on the date it was due.
Regards, Jack Thompson
