Cheney Mason giving was appears to be an unofficial legal opinion.
Casey Anthony defense attorney Cheney Mason is not facing a Florida Bar review after giving a celebratory middle-finger salute to the public shortly after the verdict was read Thursday.

The Associated Press had reported a self-described attorney from Coral Gables filing a complaint with the Florida Bar alleging that Mason had violated rules regarding "maintaining the integrity of the profession."

The only problem is, the "attorney," Jack Thompson, was permanently disbarred several years ago and was banned from submitting filings to the bar in 2008 by the Florida Supreme Court, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The AP has since withdrawn its story and issued a retraction.

Thompson is apparently such a doofus that there's an entire Wikipedia entry mostly dedicated to his bizarre actions.

The first nationally publicized stunt (of many) he engaged in was sending pictures of his driver's license -- with a picture of Batman taped on top of his -- as part of lobbying Broward County officials to block the sales of 2 Live Crew's As Nasty as They Wanna Be album, as well as NWA's Straight Outta Compton.

Thompson's methods led to articles such as "Legally Insane: A History of Jack Thompson's Antics," as well as "10 Great Moments in Jack Thompson's (Failed) Career."

And as you can see here, he still hasn't given up playing pretend lawyer.

Meanwhile, Mason -- an actual attorney -- can keep flipping people off until an actual complaint is filed.

i would do it too.Casey Anthony is a sick bitch who deserves all the hate in the world.She killed a adorable little girl, even worse, her own daughter.its obvious, why would she not report her missing for 30 days.if my kid was missing for a hour i would have reported it!and what she was searching on the internet, is showing she was thinking about ways to kill Caylee. PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID. Letting her get away with murder like that!Someone is going to kill Casey as soon as she is free.

Not giving Mason a break! What he did was disgusting and distasteful for some one who is suppose to be Professional! A Lawyer! Yet Baez goes after Ashton for chuckling and trying to hide his face while doing so. Mason was wrong in what he did and he should be reprimanded on it! There is no excuse in the world for him to react like that on live television, in public or for that matter at anytime! Absolutely disgusting!

Give Cheney Mason a break.  I heard that parklandman was in among that pack of reporters.  Jose Baez could have got Mason off by pleading self defense.

Cheney Mason is a professional.  I don't personally know him but I believe after watching an interview with Jean Casarez, he is a dedicated lawyer who tries to do the right thing and work within the court system.  He said in this interview that there was 1 particular individual who followed the defense team every day on their way to court spouting rude/crude things to all including the females and to their credit,  they ignored the man.  I probably would not have been so forgiving and would be in jail for assaulting.  Mason also has the right under the 1st ammendment to express himself and said in the interview, the gesture was meant for this one individual, not everyone.  Frankly, I would have flipped off just about of the so-called Media Experts!!

Mason also defended his use of his now infamous middle finger salute that day -- telling us it was directed at a "guy from a radio station who has been stalking my team for months."

Cheney says, "He was yelling at the ladies on my team, 'Are you on your period?' and he was also calling them 'baby killers.'"

"This guy was outside and pounding on the glass and I flipped the son-of-a-bitch off, and I'll do it again!"

Cheney states --  "It was an expression of my first amendment right."
