Government Supports Parents' Cert. Petition in IDEA Case
As Lyle Denniston reports over at SCOTUSblog, the Solicitor General just filed a brief, pursuant to the Supreme Court's invitation, expressing its view regarding whether cert. should be granted in Winkelman v. Parma City School District. The case presents the question whether parents of children with disabilities can prosecute actions in federal court pro se under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The government's brief urges the Court to grant cert. and hold that parents can proceed pro se under the IDEA.
