Today in History (1988) - In a 7-2 decision by Justice Kennedy, SCOTUS holds that Virginia's residency requirement for bar admission without passing the state exam violates the Privileges and Immunities Clause (Supreme Court of Virginia v. Friedman). In a dissent joined by Scalia, Rehnquist reiterates his Piper belief "that the practice of law is - almost by definition - fundamentally different from those other occupations that are practiced across state lines without significant deviation from State to State."
