A prospective law school student who alleges he has a disability filed a suit in U.S. District Court in the Western District of Texas, seeking a court order to force the Law School Admissions Council to provide him with accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act for the Law School Admissions Test.

Matthew Scott Jones of Austin, Texas, alleges he was scheduled to take the LSAT in 2009 in Austin, but he didn’t take the test because the LSAC “has illegally refused and is illegally refusing to accommodate Jones’ learning disability by refusing to provide Jones additional time to take the LSAT.” He alleges he was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and his disability impairs his reading ability and his ability to concentrate “to the point that his competence level is below that expected in comparison to most people.”
