The presiding judge in the case, Ronald M. Friedman, has recused himself and filed a complaint with the Florida bar against Thompson. Undaunted, Thompson sent an open letter to the Florida bar arguing First Amendment rights and stating that 'if you take Judge Friedman's bait, I shall reel you in."?
For the time being Thompson seems to have avoided jail time, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. The self proclaimed 'jerk"? isn't likely to back down from a fight any time soon.
