Thompson v. The Florida Bar Doc. 207 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA JOHN B. THOMPSON, Plaintiff, v. THE FLORIDA BAR and DAVA J. TUNIS, Defendants. PLAINTIFF'S NOTICE OF FILING RE SELECTIVE PROSECUTION COMES NOW plaintiff, John B. Thompson, hereinafter Thompson, as an attorney on his own behalf, and hereby affords notice to the court of the filing a document that sheds further light on The Bar's selective prosecution of him and thus a further prima facie showing of its denial to him of equal protection, stating: Attached hereto is a remarkable news story sent the undersigned by JR Rosskamp, one of Thompson's clients. She is the former long-time employee of Tew Cardenas who was stalked by Tom Tew after Thompson begged Tew to stop the stalking and after Thompson begged The Bar to do what it could to make him stop. As an immediate result of subsequent stalking incident, Ms. Rosskamp suffered a stroke and permanent physical disability. The Bar, the court may remember, wrote Ms. Rosskamp that because Mr. Tew was not stalking her on behalf of a client, it was not interested. Tew while Case No. 07-21256 (Judge Adalberto Jordan) stalking Rosskamp was repeatedly asking Rosskamp to fire Thompson as her attorney. Mr. Tew as late as last week stalked Rosskamp again, in violation of a written promise not to, and during the stalking incident, Mr. Tew made specific reference to his hope that The Bar would disbar Thompson. 1 Further proof of The Bar's remarkable propensity to "look the other way" is found in the attached. Here is a young law license applicant, as reported yesterday in the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel whose past conviction was known to the Florida Supreme Court, and the Court nevertheless approved his intern status "with no restrictions." This is the same Supreme Court that cannot be bothered with Thompson's constitutional arguments set forth in serial writs of mandamus which Greenberg Traurig assures this federal court Thompson has a right to be heard before trial. Let's see how this works, shall we? If a lawyer spends twenty years of his life in pro bono efforts against the criminal broadcast of indecent sexual material (see 18 USC 1464) by two different broadcast industry clients of Norm Kent, then The Florida Bar will harass Thompson for four years starting in 1988 and now for three years starting in 2004 with SLAPP Bar complaints brought by Kent and the Tew Cardenas firm in retaliation for Thompson's pro bono efforts. Like Tom Tew, Thompson has had no clients on whose behalf he was opposing this commercial predatory activity. Along comes law license applicant Bryan Docobo who actually engages in predatory sexual activity, and the Florida Supreme Court and The Florida Bar couldn't care less. Now we have a further understanding of why The Florida Bar couldn't care less that Norm Kent, The Bar's most abiding friend as a SLAPP Bar complainant against Jack Thompson can presently traffick in what this court has correctly labeled "obscenity" featuring young males, and The Florida Bar couldn't care less. Thompson's mistake apparently has been not to engage in the predatory sexual practices and perversion so favored by The Bar's Board of Governors and Supreme Court, thereby bringing himself "within the core values of The Florida Bar," as 2 Thompson's designated reviewer and self-proclaimed "gay rights" Bar Governor Steve Chaykin has publicly sermonized to us all. If this court is the least bit inclined to dismiss Thompson's complaint for any alleged failure, at this early pleading stage, to demonstrate the "bad faith" and the equal protection denials of The Bar at his expense, it should not do so. God only knows how many other Bryan Docobos are out there. Thompson will find out. In the meantime, Thompson will ask his best friend of 33 years, his wife of 31 years, and the mother of their son of 15 years if he should engage in sex with minors and become an obscenity trafficker in order to hold onto his law license ;). Only in Florida would such a thought even come to mind. Only in Florida with perversion and predation rewarded by The Florida Bar would Thompson have to bring a federal civil rights lawsuit to try and preserve his constitutional right to come against such nonsense authored by the Guardians of Democracy. These people aren't guarding democracy; they're guarding insanity in the name of "the dignity of the profession." I HEREBY CERTIFY that this has been served upon record counsel this 13th day of October, 2007, electronically. /s/ JOHN B. THOMPSON, Plaintiff Attorney, Florida Bar #231665 1172 South Dixie Hwy., Suite 111 Coral Gables, Florida 33146 Phone: 305-666-4366 3
