>Greetings, as most know, we were victorious in
>getting the Supreme Court to deny the National
>Conference of Bar Examiner's Petition for a Writ
>of Certiorari on October 4th. This kept in
>place the 9th Circuit's decision issued on
>January 4th of this year that an entity such as
>NCBE must offer the accommodations to a test
>taker with a disability that best ensure that
>the exam measures the individual's apptitudes
>and abilities rather than their disability. In
>Stephanie's case, this meant that NCBE was
>ordered to provide the Multistate Bar Exam and
>Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam on a
>computer with assistive technology. This
>portion of the litigation tied back to U.S.
>District Court Judge Charles Breyer's original
>grant of a preliminary injunction ordering the accommodations.
>After the 9th Circuit victory, we moved for
>summary judgment on Stephanie's claims and
>asked the Court to issue a permanent injuction
>ordering the accommodations. I am very pleased
>to say that today, Judge Breyer granted summary
>judgment in our favor. Attached you will find
>an accessible pdf of the decision. Through this
>whole time, Stephanie has been represented by
>myself, Brown, Goldstein, and Levy of Baltimore,
>and Disability Rights Advocates of Berkley.
