Tim Zinnecker (South Texas College of Law) passed along a link to the story that the Texas Supreme Court (below right) has amended its "four times and you're done" rule on taking the bar exam, allowing four time unsuccessful takers to get a waiver of the limit by showing "good cause." I'm not sure why anybody would care how many times you take the exam, and it's not clear from the story whether the applicant seeking to take it a fifth time was complaining that the rule or the exam itself was unfair. By the way, it looks like Supreme Court justices in Texas are elected. I didn't see any limits on how many times you could run before you were disqualified from running.
