Court reverses ALJ and finds child with ADHD eligible for special education
M.P. v. Santa Monica,(WL 2783194 for those with Westlaw): This case addresses a common theme--whether a child’s less than able performance results from ADHD or a lack of motivation. There is an excellent analysis of expert testimony, credited by the Court in contravention of the ALJ’s determination. This is a hidden gem of a case and one which I will likely write in more detail about at a later point.
