Stephen Glass, the whiz-kid magazine writer exposed 13 years ago as a serial fabricator, is telling what may be his most compelling story yet — his own. He swears he’s not making it up, and he’s asking California‘s highest court to believe him and give him a chance.
Glass, who graduated in 2000 from Georgetown’s law school, works as a paralegal for a firm in Beverly Hills, California. But he really wants to be a lawyer, and he insists he’s remorseful, reformed and committed to telling the truth. Others aren’t so sure, which is why a bar application that usually would be a no-brainer is taking five years and counting.
There is no question that Glass is brilliant, and he easily passed the bar exams in New York and California. But his budding legal career has become snagged on the jagged rocks of good character and moral fitness.
