Presented are selected summaries of pending and completed litigation throughout the country concerning handicapped children and legal responsibility in the right to an education, the right to treatment, and student placement. Generally speaking, the plaintiffs are children representing a disability area who allege violation of their civil liberties, and the defendents are various state officials and officials of pertinent schools. Summaries are provided for six court cases on the right to an education, two cases on the right to treatment, and two cases on student placement. Briefly mentioned are two cases each on the right to an education and on the right to treatment which will receive additional discussion in the next continuing summary, pending further information.
