NY denies admission to candidate because of failure to pay student loans.
A few days ago I posted about a lawyer who was disbarred for not paying student loans. Today, the ABA Journal.com is reporting that the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court has refused to admit an applicant on character and fitness grounds, even though he passed the state bar in February 2008 because he has delinquent student loans dating back to 1985. The decision is available here. Full story here.
