Legal Loop

Frazer & Feldman, LLP has developed a series of roundtable discussions regarding the latest special education issues with legal implications. We have developed the "Legal Loop," exclusively for Frazer & Feldman, LLP, clients.

Recent Legal Loop Meetings

On Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 25 Special Education Administrators from many of our school district clients met with several of our attorneys in another of a series of roundtable discussions regarding the latest special issues (the "Legal Loop"). The Legal Loop is an invitation-only meeting offered exclusively to Frazer & Feldman, LLP clients, held at our offices in Garden City, N.Y.

On Wednesday, September 28th we conducted another lunch time version of “The Legal Loop,” a series of conferences to discuss matters of importance to special education administrators. The topic was bullying and the IEP. As the result of a recent Second Circuit Court of Appeals decision CSEs must now consider the impact of bullying on students with special needs and must consider whether a victim of bullying has been denied a free and appropriate public education. Twenty five of our special education administrators and four of our attorneys engaged in a vibrant discussion about how the decision will impact the way IEPs are developed and the things that must be done to address bullying both with respect to the victim and the bully.

The kick off discussion reviewed the landmark "Retrospective Testimony" decision, R.E. ex rel J.E. v. NYC Dept. of Educ., et. al., 694 F.3d 167, (2d Cir., 2012), cert. denied 2013 WL 1418840 (2013). As you may know, R.E. creates a significant limitation on the type of testimony which may be offered by school districts in tuition reimbursement cases.
