Court Rejects California Law School's Lawsuit Against State Bar Claiming First Amendment Right to Hide Bar Passage Stats

SCFollowing up on my previous post, California Law School Sues State Bar, Claims First Amendment Right to Hide Bar Passage Stats:  National Law Journal, Challenge Rejected to California's Law School Reporting Rule:

A federal judge has tentatively dismissed a Southern California law school’s challenge to a new state regulation that requires accredited institutions to post the bar examination pass rates of its graduates.

U.S. District Judge James Selna wrote that the requirement, part of new guidelines requiring the state’s accredited law schools to maintain a 40% bar passage rate, regulates commercial speech and, as such, does not violate the free speech rights of the Southern California Institute of Law.
