Flagging Ban in California Designed to Protect Disabled LSAT Test Takers From Potentially Discriminatory Law School Admission Review Put On Hold
NLJ's Karen Sloan reports that Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Raymond Cadei issued a preliminary injunction blocking enforcement of California Assembly Bill 2122 on Feb. 1st. The statute would have prohibited the LSAC from continuing its "flagging" practice for alerting law schools when LSAT test takers with disabilities received extra time for the LSAT.
Sloan reports "[t]he ruling means that the flagging ban will not apply to scores earned during the February 9 administration of the LSAT, the first since the bill went into effect on January 1." For more, see Ruling allows council to 'flag' disabled Law School Admission Test takers. [JH]
