33. You cannot practice law in MA courts without a MA bar card.

But look at the federal rule:

"A lawyer applying for admission to the bar of (any particular United States District) Court must be licensed to practice law by the licensing authority of one of the fifty states, DC, or a US Territory . . . ."

So, she could have been (and probably was) licensed in Texas and/or New Jersey (at the least) when she was licensed to practice in various federal courts. Once licensed in federal courts, you retain that license - period - so long as you pay the dues (if any). Note the big cases that Jacobson the conservative hater cites are all federal - but he hasn't looked into her federal admissions.

There is no here here.
