    What opponents? Lawyers?There should be yearly testing of lawyers in practice.The doctrine of immunity allows lawyers to lie, to defraud, and in most cases to ignore their clients testimony in favour of their own when discussing falsified evidence by lawyers.Like Europe and England the USA needs to do away with the elevation of strip mall lawyers from third rate law schools above the law.

    Let me see, the public does not care if a person abuses drugs or alcohol is admitted to practice law in Ct.? Nor do does the public care if a person has been treated for some type of sexual abuse? Nor does the public care if a person was treated as a habitual gambler? Makes a lot of sense to a gerbil but not to me.
