More insanity in academia26 September 2007: Lynne STEWART, the disbarred lawyer convicted of aiding terrorists will be giving a lecture on legal ethics at an upcoming law school ethics conference at Hofstra University. STEWART, who was found guilty of conspiring with terrorist Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the Muslim terrorist convicted in 1996 of plots to bomb landmarks in and around New York City, is scheduled to give a lecture on October 16 at Hofstra Law School’s “Legal Ethics: Lawyering on the Edge” at the Hempsted, NY University.

After a nine-month trial and nearly 2 weeks of jury deliberations, Stewart was convicted on 10 February 2005 of providing material support to terrorists. For her role in facilitating illegal communications between imprisoned Islamic terrorist Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and the Egyptian Islamic Group Gamaat al Islamia, an Islamic terrorist group allied with al Qaeda, STEWART was sentenced to a mere 28 months in prison. She is currently free on bail pending appeal.
