MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Board of Bar Examiners will re-evaluate whether a Democratic candidate for attorney general can actually practice law.
It is possible Scott Hassett may need another 30 credits. Hassett is a licensed attorney who went inactive between 2004 and 2009.
Before May 1, 2009, anyone who had been inactive for more than 2 years needed 30 credits to regain active status. After that, they needed 60.
Hassett sent the board a letter in July of last year saying he had completed 30 credits and he was cleared for active status. The board director says it is unclear at this time whether Hassett needs another 30 credits before he can practice again -- because it isn't clear which version of the rules he should have followed.
