School district can not recoup pendency payments
Atlanta v. SF : In this case decided in September 2010, a Georgia court held “that parents of a child awarded private educational services because the IEP offered by the school was deemed to be inappropriate are not required to reimburse the school district for that expenditure, even if the administrative decision is later reversed.” This decision contains an overview of case law addressing this issue from other courts around the country. It is of particular interest here in New York as the New York City Board of Education has made repeated attempts to recoup pendency payments.
