The Minnesota Supreme Court has revoked a conditional readmission of an attorney who was suspended for a minimum of 30 days in 2017.
He was required by the court to pass the professional responsibility portion of the state bar examination within one year and twice failed to pass the MPRE.
He then moved for an extension "because he was unable to adequately prepare for the Match 2018 MPRE due to pressing family obligations that required him to travel out of the country during the winter before the exam and the time it took him to prepare for and attend a sentencing hearing that was scheduled 2 days before the exam."
The Director of the Office of Lawyer Professional Responsibility opposed the request.
The court notes that such requests have been "routinely denied."
He may reapply when he passes. (Mike Frisch)
