I’ve written about the continuing challenges to Wisconsin’s diploma privilege here and here. Now it appears that the privilege has successfully dodged two bullets. First, today the Wisconsin Supreme Court voted 7-0 to deny a petition filed by 70 Wisconsin lawyers asking that the Court either extend the privilege to graduates of any ABA-accredited law school for a 10-year trial period or, in the alternative, require Marquette and University of Wisconsin graduates to take the bar. Second, the federal class action challenging the privilege has ended. As I described in my prior posts, the Seventh Circuit twice sent the case back to the district court that had dismissed it. But over the summer the district court decertified the class. This left only a single plaintiff, who settled with the state for $7,500. She plans to take the bar exam in July.
