Diploma Privilege Lawsuit Reinstated
A lawsuit questioning Wisconsin's diploma privilege was reinstated on Tuesday by the Seventh Circuit, reports JS Online.
From the article:
U.S. District Judge John Shabaz dismissed the lawsuit last year. The rule exempting University of Wisconsin and Marquette University law graduates from taking the exam does not violate the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution, he said.
But the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago ruled Tuesday that Shabaz erred when he did not rule first on whether to certify the case as a class-action lawsuit. The court sent the case back to Shabaz for additional proceedings.
