Jack Thompson Sued by Take Two

Well it seems the anti-videogame lawyer Jack Thompson has been sued by Take Two. In what I would call justice, Take Two's lawyers filed suit against Jack Thompson citing his public nuisance tactic violates Take Two’s First Amendment rights.
Quote from the article: In the wake of a recent legal threat by Miami attorney Jack Thompson, game publisher Take Two Interactive has launched a pre-emptive strike.

With Thompson threatening to file suit to block the release of Grand Theft Auto 4 and Manhunt 2, Take Two has petitioned the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida for relief.

I think this has been a long time coming and it is well deserved. It would be one thing if Jack had all of the facts before starting his crusade but this guy uses bogus studies and out right propaganda to mislead and confuse everyone, including himself, in my opinion. Anyhow, check out the full story over on GamePolitics.com.
