Suits Filed Over Bar Exam Technical Malfunctions

August 13, 2014

As the Associated Press put it, new law school graduates "with mountains of debt were perhaps not the best crowd to tick off." In many states in July, those taking bar exams couldn't submit them due to technical problems at ExamSoft, the company that manages the process. Now, several of those people have filed suits and they are seeking class action status, the Associated Press reported. Their suits claim that ExamSoft should have identified (and fixed) the problems prior to the night that so many people were traumatized by being unable to submit their work. ExamSoft has apologized and noted that state bar associations extended deadlines. A statement from the company said: "Unfortunately upgrades, made in an attempt to improve the exam taker experience, played a role in the post-exam processing delay that some bar exam takers experienced."
