Stephanie Enyart Beats the Bar

I was surprised when the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) opposed Stephanie Enyart's request for permission to use special software on the California bar exam. Ms. Enyart is visually-impaired, and the software she requested would allow her to sit for the test on an equal footing with other test-takers.
But I was not at all surprised, and indeed was quite relieved, when federal court Judge Charles Breyer of the Northern District of California recently issued a preliminary injunction requiring the NCBE to make the software available to Ms. Enyart.
That is the only just result.
