It's been years in the making, but disgraced journalist Stephen Glass will finally have his day in court. The California Supreme Court, that is.
Glass rose to infamy in 1998 after the world learned that he had fabricated dozens of stories that appeared in The New Republic and other publications. Though he left journalism, he continued on with his law degree at Georgetown, eventually graduating.
In 2007, he applied to join the California Bar, but the Committee of Bar Examiners denied his application. A legal dispute ensued.
The regulating body is not convinced Glass is morally fit to practice law. It's not even a case of "once a liar, always a liar" -- they don't believe he is sufficiently rehabilitated.
