Now a 41-year-old clerk at a prestigious Los Angeles law firm, Glass maintains that he lied when he was a journalist because he wanted his editor "to love [him], like [he] wanted [his] father to love [him]," and has since rehabilitated himself. The California Supreme Court is expected to rule in 90 days.
