Blind Nyman Turkish Client, Angelo Binno, Will Get His Day In Front Of The 6th Circuit

July 15, 2021 News & Firm Accomplishments

Years after filing a lawsuit against the American Bar Association for violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Nyman Turkish client Angelo Binno will have the opportunity to present his case to the Federal 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Binno hopes to one day pursue a career in law but found he was unable to pass the Law School Admission Test (“LSAT”) because it requires applicants to use spatial reasoning skills and to draw pictures, two things that are practically impossible for a blind individual. Despite presenting a strong case, the suit was dismissed due to the fact that the ABA does not itself write the LSAT, and also because the ABA allegedly does not control the weight schools must give to the exam. Mr. Binno was originally represented by Richard Bernstein, before his election to the Michigan Supreme Court. The case will now be handled by Nyman Turkish Attorneys,  Jason Turkish, Ryan Kaiser, and Melissa Nyman. In a rare move, the 6th Circuit has decided to allow the parties to present oral arguments. Oral Arguments will be heard on October 8th in Cincinnati, Ohio.
