Cert denied on reimbursement claim

HOUSTON SCH. DIST. v. V.P., 582 F.3d 576 (5th Cir. 2009), cert denied 3/22/10, Docket No. 09-841: The opinion in this case is rather torturous, but the upshot is that the 5th Circuit awarded year 2 of a reimbursement claim on a pendency theory. The 5th Circuit also found that the parent had prevailed on the year 2 claim for purposes of attorney fees. The Supreme Court rejected the District’s petition for review.
