I’ve looked at the Maine Board of Bar Examiners 5-4 opinion and done a short account of the majority decision denying and the dissenters recommendation for admission. I think the dissent gives it pedagogic value – though students will have difficulty identifying with Bailey. (Arrogance like his comes later in life, and hopefully not at all.) But there is room for debate. The last word will be that of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court since the Board decision is presumably subject to petition for review.
