Has Jack bitten off more that he can chew?

Slashdot has pointed out that everyones favourite rabid lawyer is at it again. This time Jack Thompson is planning on suing Microsoft if a single copy of Halo 3 is sold to someone under 17. The ESRB has not actually rated the game yet, and Microsoft has nothing to do with the retail outlets that sell the game, but that won't stop Jack. It should be interesting to see him attempt to take on a company that won an antitrust suit by the US Government. Even better, all this happened before the rumours of partial nudity in the game started to appear.
"Here's the deal, Mr. Gates: Either Microsoft undertakes dramatic, real steps, through its marketing, wholesale, and
retail operations to assure that Halo 3 is not sold, via the Internet and in stores, directly to anyone under 17, or I
shall proceed to make sure that Microsoft is held to that standard by appropriate legal means. I have done that before
successfully as to Best Buy, and I shall do so again as to Microsoft and all retailers of Halo 3."
