More on the controversy over Stephen Glass' request for admission to the bar - UPDATED

Almost a year 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.  The case is now before the California Supreme Court.

For an argument in favor of admission go here. For arguments against admission go here and here.

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.
