On May 16, 2012, the Supreme Court issued an order directing the Committee of Bar Examiners to show cause why the court should grant the committee's motion to admit Sergio C. Garcia to the State Bar as a licensed attorney. This case concerns whether an undocumented immigrant who has graduated from law school and passed the California bar examination may be admitted to the California Bar or whether such admission is precluded by any federal statute or for any other reason.

In addition to briefs filed by the Committee of Bar Examiners and Garcia, the Supreme Court invited others to file amicus curiae briefs either in support of or in opposition to the motion to admit Garcia to the State Bar.
