The Minnesota Supreme Court has revoked the conditional readmission of an attorney who was suspended for a minimum of 30 days and conditionally readmitted subject to a requirement that he take and pass the MPRE.
The attorney did not demonstrate that he met the requirement to timely pass the exam.
Rather, he filed a motion to extend the time to permit him too do so.
Having failed the exam twice, he asserted good cause to extend the time
[He] contends he did not receive a passing score because the exam was administered on a computer and, having never worked on one before, he was unable to properly operate his computer.
He had also offered a supporting letter from his doctor.
The court noted that he could have sought an accommodation but ad not done so.
The sanction imposed is an indefinite suspension. (Mike Frisch)
