  • Amicus Brief
  • T.Y. v. New York City Department of Education

    The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit issued an opinion suggesting that a school district need not provide to a parent timely notice of an appropriate school placement, or provide an appropriate placement at all, if the child’s individualized education program recommended an appropriate program. The law firm Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr LLP drafted and filed an amicus brief on AFC’s behalf requesting that the Second Circuit reconsider or amend its opinion to avoid any confusion or misinterpretation of its holding that would deny students with disabilities an appropriate education.
