According to an exclusive story in the New York Post, Alexander Morelli has enlisted the help of his prominent attorney father to acquire more time for him to take the Law School Admission Test. His father is Benedict Morelli, who claims that his son suffers from “learning and attention disabilities” that were diagnosed when he was in seventh grade.

Alexander, 23, said that he wants to be like his father and that he is entitled to special ‘accommodations’ when he takes the LSAT on December 1. Those special ‘accommodations’ include being granted ‘double time’ on all of the sections of the test, extra breaks, the use of a ‘non-Scranton answer sheet’ and time to rest.

The lawsuit was filed recently in Manhattan federal court against the Law School Admission Council, which administers the test. The lawsuit claims that Alexander’s request was denied and that it violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and other laws against discrimination.

The lawsuit claims that without judicial intervention, “he will be irreparably harmed because . . . he will be delayed or prevented from proceeding with his application to law school. Further, plaintiff’s professional opportunities will be severely curtailed.”

Lawyer Jo Anne Simon, from Brooklyn, filed the lawsuit. Benedict Morelli, the former president of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, is also listed as co-counsel for his son on the lawsuit.

Alexander Morelli might not even have to worry about law school or taking the LSAT if he does not answer questions about his time at Syracuse University, where he was enrolled from August of 2007 to December of 2011. The school said that Morelli ‘has not graduated’ from the school. Benedict Morelli did not comment on the story.

According to Simon, Alexander and the Law School Admission Council came to “an amicable resolution” to the lawsuit on Monday. Neither of the parties involved in the lawsuit would discuss the reported settlement.
