Gordon Caplan, the former co-chairman of Willkie Farr & Gallagher, will be allowed to make his case for why he should not be disbarred over his role in a nationwide college admissions bribery scandal, a New York state appeals court ruled Thursday.

Caplan pleaded guilty in May to paying a consultant $75,000 to rig his daughter’s ACT score and is currently serving a one-month prison sentence on conspiracy and fraud charges. A federal judge in Boston also ordered Caplan to pay a $50,000 fine and do 250 hours of community service as part of his sentence.
