Thompson's Brilliant Legal Tactics

As this video portrays (Joystiq via Destructiod), Batjack Thompson's real gift as a lawyer is annoying judges. The judge spends almost a good ten minutes giving Jack the smackdown while explaining why he isn't recusing himself from the restraining hearing on Bully (if I'm hearing the judges mumbling correctly). Thompson proceeds with a rather childish rant at the end and accuses the judge of violating his own order.

Remember that "great victory" Thompson got by getting the judge to review the game? Based on this, I don't think we have much to worry about. Thompson pissed off the judge in Alabama, pissed off the judge in Miami and will probably continue to think that a tirade is somehow a decent legal strategy.

And wtf was on that sign?

It was a bit difficult to watch that video since the sound was a bit tricky but on earth was he doing? What kind of a lawyer sits there holding up signs as the judge makes his judgment. It was also interesting to watch him listening to the judge, he seemed to fidget and sigh like a teenager being told off. I guess he is just a rubbish lawyer.
