Isaac Lidsky to Become First Blind Supreme Court Clerk

Atlanta, GA 5/30/2008 10:39 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Actor-turned-lawyer Isaac Lidsky will be the first blind clerk at the Supreme Court. Lidsky, who is best known for playing the nerdy Weasel in the TV show ‘Saved By The Bell: The New Class,’ is set to begin his job as a clerk for retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor this July.

Lidsky suffers from the eye disease retinitis pigmentosa. He uses software that reads scanned pages aloud to him. “I can listen to things as fast as people can read them. I can do the functional equivalent of skimming,” he said.

 

Lidsky is the founder of the Hope for Vision Foundation, which helps raise awareness for the eye disease.
