The Louisiana Supreme Court has denied admission to an applicant who was granted permission to sit for the bar examination and passed.
The fitness concerns related to "his record of criminal and traffic offenses." The applicant agreed to be evaluated by the Lawyers Assistance Program ("LAP") but failed to comply with their proposed conditions.
His counsel suggested that the non-compliance was a result of financial issues.
The applicant may re-apply when he complies with "any and all" recommendations of the LAP. (Mike Frisch)
