Blind Detroit Man Wins Fight for Drastic Changes to LSAT [VIDEO]
It's taken nearly a decade, but a blind Michigan man seeking to become a lawyer has won his fight to bring changes to the law school entrance exam.
Angelo Binno took his first LSAT (Law School Admission Test) eight years ago but was not able to complete all the sections.
"They handed me a pencil and paper and said it's useless to me because I can't see to draw," Binno tells WDIV.
Binno then filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Law School Admission Council. Cash settlements have been proposed, but Binno refused to accept them.
In about 48 months, the structure of the LSAT will be changed to eliminate the drawing portion of the exam.
His attorney, Jason Turkish praised Binno for his tenacity.
"You know what's amazing about this case? It took longer to settle because Angelo insisted it wouldn't be just for him," he said.
Turkish, who is also visually impaired said his handicap gives him a different perspective.
"I know I'm a better lawyer because of my vision because it gives me a perspective because when I go to federal court I know the challenges my clients face."
