By Linda Davis | CorrespondentPUBLISHED: May 30, 2019 at 5:00 am | UPDATED: May 30, 2019 at 5:40 am PIEDMONT — The city’s recreation director, Sara Lillevand, has been chosen as the new city administrator to replace retiring administrator Paul Benoit, who will leave his post on July 1. The announcement was made May 28 after closed-door interviews with candidates by the City Council on May 16-17. “She has knocked it out of the park. We couldn’t be happier.

An order issued late Monday by the California Supreme Court has cleared the way for a law graduate without a credit card to take the bar exam today.Sara Granda, a 29-year-old indigent quadriplegic who receives disability benefits, says she paid the exam fee of $648 with a state-issued check. But the state bar never processed Granda’s online application because she didn’t fill in the space for a credit card number.Granda was paralyzed in an auto accident, and she uses a wheelchair and a respirator. She graduated from the University of California at Davis law school. She filed suit, first in federal court, when she learned she would not be able to take the bar exam. The case was dismissed on jurisdictional grounds, and Granda refiled in the state supreme court.Granda had the support of Gov.

The California bar exam starts tomorrow, and the last word from officials was that Sara Granda wouldn’t be allowed to take it.The quadriplegic woman, who is indigent and receiving disability benefits, paid the more than $600 fee with a state-issued check, and hence the bar exam form she filed online lacked the required credit card information and was never processed. Nor does she have a credit card, reports the Sacramento Bee.However, Sara Granda plans to petition the state supreme court today for an order requiring her to be allowed to take the exam, and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is personally calling for bar officials to relent, the newspaper recounts. A federal lawsuit she previously filed seeking a restraining order was dismissed Friday by a judge who said the state supreme court is the proper forum, since it has jurisdiction over the State Bar of California.Granda, 29, is a May graduate of the University of California at Davis School of Law. She was paralyzed from the neck … [Read more...] about Will Credit Card Snafu Keep Disabled Law Grad from Taking Calif. Bar?
