Customer Question

My son took the SAT the first week of June in NJ

It will soon ne 8/1/09.

They are checking hs scores. There is a difference that shows an increase.We expect

I can't get them to tell me the score. By Sept he has to take the exam again. I want his score now. Can I sue and compel them to release teh score and promulgate it so we don't pay for it again and he is forced to take it. Can't we ask a judge to have it released?

Funny they said to my wife..for free he can take it again..Isn't this nuts...

Thanks for your question .Yes SAT like everyone here gets sued . You could try this if you think the informationis avaialable here. A court order would require them to produce it. You can certianly file a lawuit and seek this information through court order. I understand how frustrating this can be here. You will probably need a local lawyer to pursue this. I wish you good luck in this matter..

I know I can sue. The reponse that I need a local attorney is unacceptable. I was looking for more input. Is there specifics on previous case law compelling SAT to release the score

Prior litigation. They get sued all the time for various screw ups..
