This month, a family represented by partner David J. Berney prevailed in a special education due process hearing before the Pennsylvania Office of Dispute Resolution. The family sued their child’s school district, alleging that it violated the child’s right to a free and appropriate public education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. With Dave’s assistance, the family obtained private-school tuition reimbursement and compensatory education services.
In the coming weeks, the Office of Dispute Resolution will post the decision, C.K. v. School District of Philadelphia, here.
