Notable Win: Haddon Township BOE v. J.C. on behalf of J.C. (J.C., the minor student, is referred to as J.C.J. to distinguish party initials).

Client: Haddon Township BOE

Court: Office of Administrative Law

Trial Attorney: Robert A. Muccilli, Esq. 

**Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances**

The school district brought an action for emergent relief against J.C., on behalf of J.C.J., seeking an order to immediately place the student in an alternative placement of home instruction pending completion of a re-evaluation because maintaining the child’s current placement was substantially likely to result in injury to the child or to others, along with an order to compel parental consent for reevaluations.

The OAL concluded that the school district satisfied all of the requirements for emergent relief and ordered that the request for emergent relief be granted.  The OAL ordered that J.C.J. shall be immediately placed in an alternative placement of home instruction for dangerousness for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year and that J.C. shall fully cooperate with all efforts, requests and requirements in providing releases, scheduling and securing J.C.J.’s attendance at all evaluations/assessments.
