Attorney based in Florida, currently on a crusade against the video game industry to rid it of offensive content, attempting to link violence in games to violent crime. In 1992, he persuaded Time Warner to drop rapper Ice-T over his song "Cop Killer". Lately he has been attempting to censor Rockstar Games, producers of the Grand Theft Auto franchise, for the hidden mini-game "Hot Coffee" in GTA: San Andreas which allows the main character to have sex with his girlfriend. Disbarred for life by the Florida Bar in 2008.

Over a very extended period of time involving a number of totally unrelated cases and individuals, [r]espondent has demonstrated a pattern of conduct to strike out harshly, extensively, repeatedly and willfully to simply try to bring as much difficulty, distraction and anguish to those he considers in opposition to his causes. He does not proceed within the guidelines of appropriate professional behavior, but rather uses other means available to intimidate, harass, or bring public disrepute to those whom he perceives oppose him.
