BOSTON (AP) -- A Harvard student has won her battle to get extra break time so she can pump breast milk during a medical licensing exam.
A Massachusetts appeals court upheld a ruling giving the woman more than the standard 45-minute break during the nine-hour test. A judge says that, otherwise, she would not be on equal footing with men and non-lactating women taking the test.
The woman will now get an extra 60 minutes of break time. She has already received special accommodations for dyslexia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
The National Board of Medical Examiners plans to appeal.
