Still talking about the decision to refuse admission to Stephen Glass
I recently posted a link to comments about the California Supreme Court's decision to deny admission to Stephen Glass. Here's more: Over at the Legal Ethics Forum, two renowned scholars have published short comments. In the first one, Mitchell Simon (University of New Hampshire) argues that although the court had ample legal basis to reach the decision it reached, the opinion emphasized the wrong analysis. You can read his comments here. In the other comment, Brad Wendell (Cornell) discusses social psychology issues presented by the case and the approach to the evidence presented and the question of whether the decision should have been based on the notion that past conduct is a good way to predict future conduct.
