Cognitively impaired woman sues for more time to take the LSAT

Administrators deemed her request insufficient and demanded she undergo further testing

A New York woman with a cognitive disability is suing administrators of the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) for not giving her an extension to take the exam. She received extra time when she took the test around 20 years ago, after sustaining a gunshot wound to the arm.

The complaint, which Lisa Rousso filed in Brooklyn on Monday, claimed that she had a brain lesion removed in 2005, a procedure which left her with a cognitive disorder that causes her to read and write more slowly.
