**Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances**
The school district brought an action for an expedited due process hearing and emergent relief with New Jersey Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (“OAL”) seeking an interim alternative educational placement on the grounds that the continued the student’s placement in the Middle School was substantially likely to result in injury to the student and others. M.L. and T.N., on behalf of J.N., filed a cross-petition for emergent relief with the OAL, seeking the immediate return of J.N. to school under the doctrine of stay-put.
Following oral argument on the respective emergent applications, OAL granted the school district’s application for emergent relief and removed J.N. from his placement. The OAL further ordered that J.N.’s records may be released to out-of-district schools deemed appropriate by either or both parties for the purposes of evaluating J.N. for admission.
