>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.
