Board of Education of Hyde Park Cent. Sch. Dist. v. Frank G. et al.
- Brief in Opposition to Certiorari (12/27/2006)
Individuals With Disabilities Education Act: Tuition Remedy
Whether the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act permits a court to order, as "appropriate" relief, that public school authorities reimburse parents for private school tuition for a disabled child who had never been enrolled in public school and thus had not "previously received special education and related services under the authority of a public agency," 20 U.S.C. § 1412(a)(10)(c)(ii), where the public school district conceded that it had not made a free appropriate public education available to the child, and the child's private school placement was appropriate under the Act.
Bonnie Robin-Vergeer was co-counsel for the respondent at the cert stage, and the Supreme Court denied reivew.
