Upcoming Speaking Engagements : Lehigh University 39th Annual Education Law Conference on 2/25/2011

On May 13, 2011, Jacobson & John LLP will present on the topic of “Retaliation: Reasonable and Unreasonable Actions of School Districts Before, During, and After Litigation”

This session will explore federal case law addressing the issues specific to retaliation both in the Third Circuit and in other jurisdictions. The focus will be retaliation claims of parents and their children with disabilities under Section 504, the ADA, and the IDEA, although retaliation cases extend to employees under these and other legal bases, such as First Amendment expression and state whistleblower laws. What are the successive factors that OCR and that courts use to address parent/student retaliation claims, and what have been the outcome trends to date?
