I was googling "lsat add diagnosis" when I stumbled upon this interesting article. I tried searching for further information, but came up empty. The suit was filed 6 years ago, anyone know what happened?

Maybe LSAC was able to justify their policies?  I think it's a good thing that LSAC is very strict about who they allow extra time.  I could easily get a positive diagnosis for ADD from a psychiatrist.  If I got even an additional 5 minutes on every section because of some bogus diagnosis from some random doctor with no verification on LSAC's part, I would be able to consistently get raw scores of 98+.  And this would be very unfair to people who didn't get a positive ADD diagnosis.
