Woman Sues Over Law School Entrance Exam
A Fort Salonga woman who says she has a brain disorder that causes her to read and write slowly has filed a federal lawsuit against administrators of the law school entrance exam, saying she has been denied additional time she needs to take the test.
Lisa Rousso, 41, filed suit Monday in federal court in Brooklyn, saying the Pennsylvania-based Law School Admissions Council refused to provide accommodations for her disability that would allow her to take the Law School Admission Test on Saturday at Farmingdale State College.
She also seeks compensation for about $8,000 she has spent on fees to take the exam and legal expenses, said her attorney, Jo Anne Simon of Brooklyn. The LSAT costs $263, which includes exam fees and preparation of law school applications.
“The law requires that it be fairly administered and equitably administered,” Simon said.
