Client: Oaklyn Borough Board of Education
Venue: New Jersey State Office of Administrative Law
Brief Attorney: Robert A. Muccilli, Esq.
The parents of a special education student brought a due process petition against the Oaklyn Borough Board of Education seeking, among other things, compensatory education related to allegations that Oaklyn failed to implement certain elements of a Section 504 plan for the student. Oaklyn made an application that the petition should be dismissed for failure of the parent to sufficiently set forth the facts and proposed remedy in the petition. Oaklyn prevailed by obtaining an order from the Office of Administrative Law dismissing the petition for failure of the parent to sufficiently allow Oaklyn and the tribunal the ability to understand the nature of the dispute.
