Can California Bar LSAC From Disclosing That Disabled Test Takers Received Extra Time?

From the National Law Journal:

The Law School Admission Council has sued the state of California over a new law that bars the organization from alerting law schools when applicants get extra time to complete the Law School Admission Test. 

The California Legislature approved the legislation in September, with supporters arguing that the practice—also known as "flagging"—discriminates against disabled test takers who need the extra time. The law took effect on January 1 and will apply to scores earned during the February 9 LSAT sitting.
