LJL at the idea that Stephen Glass's problems are comparable to a college student forging a single document.

State bars absolutely have subpeona power. This is either a troll or an idiot. Every state bar FAQ and/or guide I've looked at online specifically states academic dishonesty as something they are powerfully interested in.

Just stop giving advice. "Talk to a bar lawyer" is the only reasonable thing you've said.

FutureSuperLawyer is taking a little time off to think about his sins. For those following along at home, giving legal advice about whether someone should or shouldn't have disclosed a C&F problem isn't kosher if you're not a lawyer.

I would think it's not kosher even if he is a lawyer unless he is interested in a malpractice suit.

However, considering the kid essentially asked for advice for a C&F problem, you should probably ban a lot of other people too - who admittedly gave better advice.

"Disclose, because the question tells you to disclose" is very different from "you're under no legal obligation to disclose because it was expunged."

Obviously, erring on the side of caution puts you on a better footing, but legal advice is legal advice, no? Of course, one can claim this is all just opinions, but isn't that what Future was giving - just an opinion? He even advocated seeking counsel.

Ultimately, I don't really care if the logic behind the ban is consistent. I'm just bored and playing devil's advocate.
