Disability Law Center Argues Special Education Case at the 10th Circuit

Updated: 1 month ago

On Thursday, March 21, 2024, the DLC’s Legal Director, Laura Henrie, argued an appeal at the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.  The DLC appealed the decision from the District of Utah in E.J. et al v. Salt Lake City School District.   In the original complaint, the DLC asserted claims of discrimination under the ADA, Rehab Act, and IDEA alleging that SLCSD discriminates against students with intellectual and developmental disabilities by denying them access to their neighborhood schools with any individualized assessment, and by forcing them to access special education in “hub schools” with higher concentrations of children with disabilities.  You can listen to the oral argument at the 10th Circuit here.
