SAN FRANCISCO — The California Supreme Court has denied a law license to a former journalist who was caught fabricating stories for major national magazines.

The court ruled Monday that Stephen Glass cannot practice law in California because evidence he offered as proof of redemption and rehabilitation fell short.

Glass has acknowledged making up all or parts of 42 magazine articles published in the New Republic, Rolling Stone and elsewhere in the 1990s when he was in his mid-20s and a rising literary star.

He later attended law school at Georgetown University, passed California's bar exam in 2007 and applied to practice law in California.

Glass argued he had undergone psychotherapy, apologized to publishers and kept out of trouble since 1998.

Maybe he just doesn't have the necessary "Judas Syndrome".

Having lived in California for many years I find their denial of a law license to Glass the epitome of hypocrisy. You cannot throw a rock in any county in California without hitting a crooked lawyer, he should set his sights higher.
