Is Doctor of Psychology and alleged trademark troll, Tim Langdell, teaming up with Jack Thompson to take on EA? The two met after Jack announced his potential return to the courtroom. He was disbarred for filing numerous frivolous lawsuits, among other things. The rumor mill was abuzz with theories about the two teaming up to dismantle the game industry through petty litigation and "expert" appearances on Fox and Friends.

But actually, this rumor turns out to be only half-true. It turns out that they did in fact meet after Dr. Langdell discovered that he needed a lawyer for his impending trial. Game publisher, EA, asked the patent office to remove several of Langdell's patents registered by his company, Edge Games. Apparently, Thompson offered to represent Langdell in trade for services. Crazy Mike, our janitor and all 'round good guy, believes that this makes perfect sense, since it's obvious that Mr. Thompson needs a psychologist.
