I wonder if people can give me feedback as to whether the following incident will hinder my ability to get into law school and/or be admitted to any State Bar:
As an employee of the Freedom of Information Unit in a local District Attorney's Office, I was asked to resign because I had made Freedom of Information requests to other state government agencies using the office resources (phone and fax machine). The information I sought was public, and no criminal action was (nor could it have been) taken.
After seeing some people here with criminal records, I'm inclined to think that as long as Im honest, it won't be a problem, as this is the only blemish on my record (except for 3-4 tickets for moving violations and an equal number of at-fault car accidents, but I don't think those matter.
Will my "Freedom of Information problem" hinder my ability to get into law school and/or be admitted to any State Bar?
Any feedback is welcome.
