Denied Admission After Passing the Bar on the 12th Try
Mike Frisch at the Legal Profession Blog posts about this rather pathetic story of a candidate for admission to the D.C. Bar who flunked the exam a dozen times before passing (he'd also failed the Virginia exam six times).. Sadly, however, this isn't a tale of the the triumph of persistence because he was denied admission anyway. Turned out he'd cheated on one of his earlier exams and attempted to get a disability accommodation without justification.
Still, I'm not sure that the previous story tops this one, about the pregnant attorney who took the bar exam for her husband. The fraud was discovered, apparently, because, posing as her husband (also a serial flunker), scores soared -- the woman received the ninth-best score in the state.
