IDEA Class Action Dismissed

By John Forester | November 16, 2020

From the Wheeler Report…

On July 28, 2020, a complaint was brought in the Southern District of New York against every school district in the United States alleging that all are or have violated the IDEA when deciding to close schools in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In its most recent Legal Update, Buelow Vetter focuses on the Court’s November 13, 2020 dismissal of the case against all Defendants, including all Wisconsin School Districts.
