Clark Peterson, former President of Necromancer Games, has been getting some bad press recently, precisely because of his RPG background. Clark serves as a Judge in Idaho and it seems a few of the litigants that have passed through his court have determined that his hobby has distracted him from his duties, costing them legal fees and other various and sundry.
Its, of course, just ridiculous. I've known Clark Peterson for well over a decade. I've worked with him on a number of projects. He's one of the most professional people I know.
So here's hoping he weathers this storm with his normal aplomb.
