Hurrah for Dee!!

Associated Press story ran nationwide:
A federal judge has ruled in favor of a blind Vermont Law School student who alleged that a national legal testing firm discriminated against her by saying it would not accommodate her disability by allowing her to take a legal ethics test on a computer.Forty-four-year-old Deanna Jones of Middlesex won a preliminary injunction from the court saying the National Conference of Bar Examiners had to allow her to use a computer so she could use two types of software that have allowed her to maintain a high B average while in law school.

Jones is scheduled to take the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam this Friday.  (This was posted last week, she sat for the MPRE on August 5th.)
