A different perspective on the Stephen Glass case, from David Plotz (Slate)

“I don’t like Steve. And I don’t trust Steve. Even so, today’s California Supreme Court decision denying him admission to the California bar is misguided and cruel, a verdict that embodies what is wrong with American law.” So writes David Plotz (Slate).

I’m not persuaded, largely because the article doesn’t confront the California Supreme Court’s arguments about “instances of dishonesty and disingenuousness occurring after Glass’s exposure, up to and including the State Bar evidentiary hearing in 2010.” Still, I think the piece makes some interesting points and is worth passing along — check it out, if you’re interested in the Glass matter.

See here for my earlier post on the subject.

Eugene Volokh teaches free speech law, religious freedom law, church-state relations law, a First Amendment Amicus Brief Clinic, and tort law, at UCLA School of Law, where he has also often taught copyright law, criminal law, and a seminar on firearms regulation policy.
