Court denies motion to dismiss complaint seeking audio-visual surveillance

C.S. v. STATE (E.D.Mo. 9-8-2009):

Child suffers from multiple severe disabilities and is placed by the school district in a state school for the severely handicapped. Parents alleged that the child was neglected and abused and that the school failed to implement the child’s IEP. Parents sought compensatory services and audio/visual surveillance. The school district moved to dismiss the parents’ complaint. The Court examined the request for surveillance and held that it could be necessary for a child to receive an appropriate education. Therefore, the Court refused to dismiss the complaint.
