Sara Granda says a "ridiculous snafu" is preventing her from taking the exam now because her fee was paid by check instead of credit card online.

A federal court judge on Friday denied the 29-year-old UC Davis School of Law graduate's request for a restraining order prohibiting the State Bar from preventing her from taking the test.

Stewart Katz, a Sacramento attorney representing Granda, says he'll ask the state Supreme Court on Monday to order the Bar to test Granda.

Failure there would force Granda to wait until February to take the exam.
