Stephen Dunne, 30, of Boston, is seeking $9.75 million in the suit against the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. He was denied a license to practice law in May after scoring 268.866 on the exam, just shy of the 270 passing grade.
Now this bar exam flunky is asking the court to dismiss his bogus claim:
A Boston man has asked a federal court to dismiss his lawsuit in which he claimed that his refusal to answer a Massachusetts bar exam question related to gay marriage caused him to fail the test.
Stephen Dunne, 30, maintained that answering the essay question would have violated his Irish Catholic beliefs and First Amendment rights, because it would imply his support of gay marriage and parenting.
But the kicker is that he claims the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners took "corrective action" and didn't include the "offensive" question in the July exam so it did what he wanted them to do, only the board had a different response:
But in court documents filed yesterday, the board’s attorney said the board has “not agreed to limit the content” of any future bar exams. The board’s decision not to include the same question on the July exam “merely reflects their standard practice of not repeating questions on successive bar examinations,” the court filing said.
When will someone file a lawsuit against this flunky who wasted the court's time and money for this ridiculous lawsuit. I'm sure if he ever passes the Massachusetts Bar there will be a line waiting outside his door for his services!
