F. Lee Bailey Seeks Law License in Maine
03/08/2013 10:26 AM ET  

The celebrity lawyer, whose clients have included O.J. Simpson and Patty Hearst, has asked a Supreme Judicial Court judge to overturn the state Board of Bar Examiners' decision denying him a license.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ F. Lee Bailey has gone before Maine's highest court in effort to get a license to practice law in the state.

The celebrity lawyer, whose high-profile clients have included O.J. Simpson and Patty Hearst, asked a Supreme Judicial Court judge Thursday to overturn the state Board of Bar Examiners' decision denying him a license.

The 79-year-old Bailey passed the Maine bar last winter. He was previously licensed in Massachusetts and Florida but was disbarred in those states for mishandling $6 million worth of stock for a client.

Bailey, who has lived in Yarmouth since 2010, tells
The Portland Press Herald he was disillusioned about the profession until he moved to Maine. He says he has plenty to offer and is in good physical and mental shape.

The judge did not immediately rule.
