The LSAC has been at the receiving end of quite a bit of process over the past few years. Lawsuits filed against them under the American’s with Disabilities Act for discriminatory practices (both in denying LSAT test takers accommodations, and in flagging LSAT scores received with accommodated LSAT testing) seem to be on the upswing. Even the Justice Department has intervened.
So it’s refreshing to see LSAC take the offensive and file a lawsuit itself.
Governor Gerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 2122 into law on September 26, 2012, specifically targeting the LSAC/LSAT. They are no longer allowed to “flag” LSAT scores – essentially, an asterisk that allows law schools to tell who received accommodations when taking the LSAT.
