Sander v. State Bar of California

Kerr & Wagstaffe represents the State Bar of California and its Board of Governors in defending the State Bar’s decision not to release records concerning the ethnicity, academic record, and bar exam scores of all applicants as requested by several researchers. The researchers sued, claiming that the State Bar’s admissions database is a public record subject to access under the common law and Proposition 59. Kerr & Wagstaffe defeated those claims at a writ of mandate trial and continues its representation of the State Bar in the California Supreme Court.
