TWO YEARS MAY REALLY MEAN TWO YEARS ... MAYBE

In a new case out of the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Baker v. Southern York Area School District, the District Court applied in a Section 504 FAPE case a strict two year statute of limitations, borrowing the statute of limitations from the IDEA. Looking to a recent case from the Third Circuit, P.P. v. West Chester Area School District, discussed below, the Court simply looked to the filing date of the Complaint and limited the claims to two years prior to that date. However, it appears that there continues to be cases all over the map on how to apply statute of limitations in IDEA cases. It appears that will likely to continue until the issue is decided by the Third Circuit.
