District Court in D.L. v. District of Columbia certifies subclasses, allowing class claims challenging systemic failures in the District of Columbia special education system

In a decision issued on November 8, 2013, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia certified four subclasses challenging failures by the District of Columbia to provide required special education services to preschool-aged children in the District.  The prior class was de-certified by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit following the Supreme Court’s decision in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes and remanded for reconsideration of certification of classes or sub-classes.  The district court will commence proceedings to make findings of fact with regard to each subclass since the April 2011 trial.  To learn more about this case, click here, and, to read the Court’s decision, click here.
