Dell Graham Attorneys Discuss Student Restraints at Professional Conference


Dell Graham Attorneys Andrew Morey and David Delaney were recently invited speakers at a conference of claims professionals for public entities.  Mr. Morey and Mr. Delaney presented information on the rise of claims stemming from the restraint of children in educational settings.  These claims arise when students’ freedom of movement is restricted if they exhibit behavior that is a danger to themselves or others.  The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Americian Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, as well as civil rights claims under Section 1983 were discussed in relation to the trend of mainstreaming students with disabilities into regular classrooms.
