US District Court Favorably Cites Firm’s Winning Arguments

The US District Court for the District of New Jersey recently decided that failure to strictly follow a disabled’s student IEP in connection with pick-up and drop off from the school bus is not a denial of a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). The Court cited with approval our Firms’ successful defense of a school district where the bus stop was moved to the corner from pick-up at the students home due to safety concerns. The District Court ruled that the failure to strictly follow the IEP in connection with transportation did not violate the students’ rights.
