Judge dismisses Wisconsin
bar-exam challenge

March 24, 2010

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - State attorneys have settled a lawsuit challenging Wisconsin's policy of allowing in-state law students to practice without passing the bar exam.

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.
