Wiesmueller v. Kosobucki, No. 08-2527

By FindLaw Staff on July 09, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a class action challenging the Wisconsin policy of allowing graduates of law schools in the state to be admitted to practice law without taking the Wisconsin bar exam, district court's grant of defendants' motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim is reversed and remanded where the case was dismissed prematurely, since questions remain as to whether the diploma privilege discriminates against graduates of out-of state law schools who would like to practice law in Wisconsin and burdens interstate commerce in violation of the Commerce Clause.
