Diversity training for lawyers upheld 

Our NA friends at Power Line report on that the case of Elliot Rothenberg, who is threatened with suspension from the bar if he does not meet an "elimination of bias" requirement. Big Trunk is offering a course called "Bias in the Legal Profession: What Bias?" and has invited the Minnesota Supreme Court to speak about its ruling. Alas, no takers. I will ask Trunk if non-lawyers like me can attend the course.

Trunk recommends also reading Bias CLE 599 to 1, a blog written by a lawyer who filed an amicus brief for Rothenberg. With any luck, one or more of these people will be a future guest on Northern Alliance Radio. Watch for program announcements.
