State Complaint process and stay put

Millay v. Surry School Dept., 584 F.Supp.2d 219 (D.Me. Oct 28, 2008): In this procedurally complex case in which the parent filed a state complaint, a due process hearing request and a federal court lawsuit, the court found that a state complaint finding in the parent’s favor constituted an agreement between the state and parent for purposes of establishing the child’s stay put placement.
