Case Description: 

May a state constitutionally condition its willingness to allow a lawyer to be admitted to practice without taking a bar examination based on the willingness of the state in which that lawyer is already admitted, and in which that lawyer has been recently practicing, to reciprocate for lawyers from the admitting state?

Scott Nelson and Alan Morrison of Public Citizen represented the petitioner at the cert stage, and the Supreme Court denied cert.
