Remember that guy in Massachusetts who was suing the state board of Bar examiners for asking a question on the exam that referenced a lesbian couple and the state supreme court justices for ruling in favor of same-sex marriage? Well, the dude dropped the suit. From the Boston Herald:

In court documents, Dunne said he wanted to drop his suit because the July bar exam didn’t include what he called the “patently offensive and morally repugnant” gay marriage question. He characterized that as a “corrective action” by the board.

The board won't even let him have an AFA style victory - in response to his motion to voluntarily dismiss, where he states that he's assured that the question will never be asked again and no one who wants to be a lawyer will ever be forced to know the law, the board reminded everyone that they always change the questions for the new exam. This guy just can't win!

I love how he tried to spin why he dropped the suit. The words "without merit" didn't happen to fall out of his mouth, did they? :)
