Judge Dava Tunis, who is currently presiding over the Florida Bar's disbarment case against Jack Thompson, has recommended that Thompson be considered for a permanent disbarment and not just the ten year suspension that had originally been asked for.

Gamepolitics managed to obtain a copy of the judge's recommendation for the case, which indicated that Judge Tunis did not believe the ten year suspension the Florida Bar had been pushing for was going to be enough.

Throughout the case Jack Thompson has been highly critical of Judge Dava Tunis, openly calling her "mentally impaired" and a "raving wild woman".

In addition to the permanent disbarment, Judge Tunis has recommended that Thompson be made to pay a $43,675 fine for the legal costs incurred by the Florida Bar in this case.

In May, Thompson was found guilty of 27 out of 31 charges made against him in a misconduct suit relating to his campaign against computer game violence.

Do you think Jack Thompson should be disbarred, or is he just misunderstood? Do you object to his views on video-game violence, or just the way he campaigns for them? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.
