A few days ago I wrote about the controversy over the request for admission to the bar by Stephen Glass, a former journalist who was exposed for having falsified many of the stories he wrote for important national magazines over the years - including some he wrote while attending law school. See my original comment on the case here. Reuters has a new story on the case here.
UPDATE 12-10-11: Stephen Diamond has posted a comment called "Now it’s Judge Honn’s turn to be the state-bar establishment laughing stock: The Stephen A. Glass embarrassment," here.
UPDATE #2: 12/27/11: (by the Legal Ethics Forum): An op-ed published by the New York Times (here) argues in favor of admission to the bar. The Washington Post has more on the story here. Here is a link to the 1998 Vanity Fair article Shattered Glass which offers a detailed account of the history behind this case. The article was later turned into a film of the same name.
