Hi, I'm Ian Johnson. I'm a research paralegal in a firm that does complex civil litigation, and is also interested in disability issues and in theology .
Ian Johnson's Bio:
Ian Johnson is a research paralegal at Weathers, Riley & Sheppeard, LLP, in Topeka. He performs legal and scientific literature research, drafts pleadings for review by attorneys, participates in drafting discovery materials and major briefs, reviews and criticizes opponents' scientific claims and expert reports, and analyzes transcripts of expert depositions. Following a personal interest in disability issues, he was the first commenter to recommend to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission the concept that ultimately became 29 CFR 1630.2(j)(5)(v) of its final regulation implementing the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008. Following a personal calling, he is the co-author of one published book dealing with Christian unity and a major contributor to two websites on the same subject. He was ordained to the ministry of the Gospel in 1995 by Randel Ministries, Inc., and for 18 months in 1996-1998 was volunteer Pastor of Topeka Faith Center in Topeka, Kansas. He presently exercises his ministry mostly through his writings, and through various lay roles in his local church.
