  •  What strikes me as odd (none)
    Is that he was a lawyer in Colorado as well as Oklahoma.

    Usually, non accredited law school graduates are not allowed to take the bar exam in any state other than the state they went to law school in.

    •  There are, in fact, a number of states... (none)
      ...that allow persons who have graduated from a non-ABA law school in other states, under certain conditions, to take the state bar, and there are also a number that allow attorneys with a sufficient history of active practice in another state to be admitted to the bar without examination regardless of how they gained admission to the bar in the other state (West Virginia, e.g., does both).
      •  I am admitted in two states, (none)
        The second by reciprocity ten years ago.  Back then, only eight states had reciprocity; now about thirty do.  And I am pretty sure no state would allow you to become licensed if you got your law degree from an out of state non- accredited school.  I may be wrong, but I sure have questions about it.
