No statute of limitations for pre-2004 compensatory education claims
Tereance D. v. School Dist. of Philadelphia: In the 3rd Circuit, prior to the 2004 amendments of the IDEA, there was no statute of limitations on compensatory education claims. In this case, the Court did an extensive analysis of whether the new IDEA 2 year statute of limitations should be applied to a case in which the complained of conduct occurred prior to the 2004 amendments, but the hearing request was filed after. The Court held that the 2 year year statute of limitations would not be applied retroactively.
