Is psychotherapy a mitigating measure taken to relieve mental illness?
Topic: legal matters

Is psychotherapy prpoerly considered a mitigating measure taken to relieve mental illness?  And, if it is, should it be afforded the same degree of legal protection that is afforded to the use of psychiatric medication?

I believe the correct answer to both questions is "yes," and I've posted my opinion in a public comment on psychotherapy as a mitigating measure the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's public docket regarding its proposed regulations implementing the ADA Amemdments Act.

It's official
Mood:  special
Topic: legal matters

OK, it's now official.  By a decision of the United States Supreme Court, I'm too good for the Courts to accept.  The Bar is unworthy of me.  I will look to another destiny. 

I will leave my website bearing the court documents in place for a few months, so that others who want to learn from my briefs, and from the courts' mistakes, may do so.   Then I will move on!

Supreme Court to decide my petition for certiorari
Mood:  incredulous
Topic: legal matters

The United States Supreme Court will decide whether to grant my pro se petition for a writ of certiorari in my bar application matter this Friday.  Either way it decides, the result will be positive.  If the decision is to grant the writ, it will mean that I have some possibility of actually using my law degree (conferred "with high honors" in 1982!) sometime during my lifetime.  If this happens, I will immediately be in the market for an attorney to brief and argue my case--and I will need to find that attorney very quickly.  On the other hand, if the Court denies the writ, I will be forever freed from the burden of trying to prove that I'm "good enough" to be a lawyer (or, viewed a little differently, that the Bar is "good enough" to accept me).

For those who are curious about the details of my case, or who may be interested in representing me if the writ is granted, details may be found on this web page (which includes my petition and a link to the Supreme court's docket for the case, among other things):  Ian Johnson bar admission status page
