Tune in Monday, June 22, to ABC World News Tonight where Autism Speaks Board Member Gary Mayerson will be interviewed on the impact of the Supreme Court's decision today in Forest Grove School District v. T.A. Mayerson's firm, along with other lawyers, prepared an important amicus curiae brief to the Supreme Court on behalf of the Autism Speaks' Federal Legal Appeals Project. The salient issue is whether or not a parent has “standing” to challenge their child's Individualized Education Program (IEP) and seek reimbursement relief if that parent has never before “tried out” the school district's recommended program.
The Autism Speaks Federal Legal Appeals Project (FLAP), led by Mayerson, is a pro bono initiative at the federal level through which Autism Speaks and member law firms provide legal assistance in appropriate federal cases that have the potential to serve as legal precedent.
