A determination of misconduct on the bar examination was affirmed by the New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department. The applicant's petition for review was dismissed.
The proctors observed the applicant "repeatedly craning her neck to look at the exam of the candidate seated next to her" in an attempt to copy multiple choice answers on the July 2009 bar exam. The conduct was observed on both days of the exam.
The court found that there was substantial evidence to support the conclusions of the State Board of Law Examiners with respect to the charges. (Mike Frisch)
