The U.S. Supreme Court has requested that the Solicitor General’s Office for the United States submit briefs regarding the merits of a case that is pending appeal. The case is Arlington Central School District Board of Education v. Murphy (No.05-18). The Murphy case presents the question as to whether expert’s fees are recoverable under IDEA. This question has been answered in the negative in the T.D. v. La Grange Sch. Dist. case in the 7th Circuit and in Illinois. If Murphy were to be accepted for appeal and decided favorably for the parents’ side, it would effectively reverse the decision in T.D.
