PHOENIX (AP) - An appeals court has upheld an Arizona rule governing how attorneys who have privileges to practice law in other states can be allowed to work in Arizona.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued the decision Monday in a challenge of the rule that lets attorneys from other states practice in Arizona if lawyers from Arizona are allowed to practice in those given states.

The rule also requires attorneys in states without such reciprocal admission rules to take the bar exam as a condition for practicing in Arizona.

The case was filed on behalf of a California attorney who can’t work as a lawyer in Arizona because she failed the bar exam.

The appeals court rejected the argument that the rule discriminates against attorneys in states that don’t reciprocal rules.
