CG v. Commonwealth of PA Department of Education, 12-3747

Judgment for defendant on plaintiffs' class action claiming that Pennsylvania's method for distributing special education funds violates various laws, including the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Rehabilitation Act (RA), is affirmed, where: 1) plaintiffs do not challenge the district court's finding that the funding formula does not violate the IDEA; and 2) although compliance with the IDEA through the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE) does not immunize a program or practice from being challenged under the ADA or RA, the district court properly concluded that plaintiffs did not produce evidence showing that Pennsylvania's funding program violates the ADA or RA.
