School board hires law firm for special education litigation

The Katonah-Lewisboro school board recently approved a resolution to hire a new law firm, Thomas, Drohan, Waxman, Petigrow & Mayle LLP, to specifically handle legal matters involving special education for the 2012-13 school year, rather than the current law firm employed by the district. The financial implications are unpredictable, board member Peter Breslin said. There may also be some additional costs, but the new firm is expected to give the district better legal representation in a very important area, he said.

    The District will need legal representation when you have a Director that makes statements that characterize students as dogs. She recently suggested an intervention that involved putting a twig in a toilet and allowing a child with special needs to pee on it. Would any parent or educator support this plan? Really, is she in her right mind or was this a joke?
