A St. Louis woman is suing for double the time usually allowed for the Law School Admission Test, a white noise machine, a computer and permission to bring food and drink to the test.
Joan Hoyt, 61, is registered to take the test Oct. 5, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis. She registered for two tests earlier this year, but she didn’t get the accommodations she needed for her generalized anxiety disorder and learning and attention disabilities, Hoyt claims in the lawsuit against the Law School Admission Council, a Pennsylvania nonprofit that administers the test.
Hoyt got accommodations similar to the ones she is requesting for the LSAT as she completed her undergraduate work at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, says the complaint, which is signed by attorney Thomas Kennedy III.
The case is Joan M. Hoyt v. Law School Admission Council, 4:13-cv-01736.
