The disgraced class action king [Bill Lerach] plans to teach an ethics-of-capitalism course at Irvine. Prosecutors wonder whether it’s really aimed at doing penance for his ethical failings, or instead will offer him a chance to blast away at his enemies while garnering “community service” credit.

“He misled and fooled the court into believing he had remorse at the time of his sentencing.” Walter said that he now believes the sentence was “way too lenient” and regretted having accepted Lerach’s plea deal.
It's typical of the morons at UC irvine that they would think Bill Lerach is the right guy to teach an ethics course of any sort. The guy did jail time and was disbarred for gross ethical improprieties.
It's just a pity the judge can't send him back to do some more hard time.
