Associate Kevin Golembiewski recently co-counseled an amicus brief in the United States Courts of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on behalf of the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA), a national nonprofit dedicated to parents and children with disabilities.  The brief, filed in support of the parent in Jay F. v. William S. Hart Union High School District, argued that manifestation determinations are critical to protecting the rights of children with emotional disturbance.

The California Association for Parent-Child Advocacy (CAPCA) also signed on to the amicus brief.
