Irving Independent School District v. Tatro. 468 US 883 (1984)

Date: 
07/05/1985
Author: 
US Supreme Court, Justice Rehnquist

Eight year old student with spina bifida required CIC (clean intermittent catherization) every three - four hours to prevent kidney damage.  The court determined that CIC was a related service under IDEA and not a medical service.  The court also determined that 504 was inapplicable in this case because relief was available under IDEA.  This reversed the court of appeal's holding that 504 applied and that respondents were entitled to attorney's fees. In all other respects, the court of appeals' judgement was affirmed.
