Admission Granted

The Louisiana Supreme Court unconditionally admitted a bar applicant who was a member of the Oklahoma Bar. The applicant had been initially denied permission to sit for the bar exam because of a negative reference from an Oklahoma attorney with whom the applicant had been associated. The applicant was later given permission to sit and had passed. After a character and fitness proceeding, the court determined that admission was appropriate. A dissent would grant conditional admission. (Mike Frisch)

These opinions are uninformative- they provide no guidance to others trying to figure out what obstacles they, or clients, face to admission.

On the other hand, I understand that the court doesn't want to parade the personal business of the applicants around, if the facts are ultimately not disqualifying.
