Wisconsin Diploma Privilege Challenge Dismissed
From WKOW TV news:
State attorneys have settled a lawsuit challenging Wisconsin's policy of allowing in-state law students to practice without passing the bar exam.See the stipulation and order of dismissal.
The state has agreed to pay Corrine Wiesmueller $7,500 to drop the lawsuit.
Wiesmueller and her husband, Christopher, alleged Wisconsin's so-called diploma privilege violates the federal Commerce Clause by giving Wisconsin law students an unfair advantage over out-of-state students, who need to pass the bar before they can practice in Wisconsin.
U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb has dismissed the lawsuit.
