Firm Sues the ABA for Discriminating Against Visually Impaired Students Taking LSAT

Angelo Binno v. The American Bar Association

This lawsuit was filed on behalf of Angelo Binno, a blind Michigan student. The suit alleged the American Bar Association (ABA) violated the rights of Binno and other blind students by pressuring law schools to use the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) in their admissions process. The LSAT necessitates the use of "spatial reasoning and the ability to diagram," which disadvantages blind and visually impaired students and violates the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).

In addition, law schools risk being put on probation or losing their status as ABA-approved institutions if they waive the exam for visually impaired applicants. Therefore, most educational institutions are compelled to administer this discriminatory exam to aspiring law students.
