Florida attorney and anti-porn crusader Jack Thompson should be disbarred and not allowed to apply for readmission for at least 10 years, the Florida Bar recommended at a hearing Wednesday. A typical disbarment generally allows an attorney to reapply for admission to the Bar after five years, but Bar counsel Sheila Tuma argued that the enhanced disbarment was warranted in this instance because Thompson demonstrated a pattern of misconduct and persistently failed to admit any wrongdoing.
