The document identifies the legal issues arising from the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (P.L. 94-142) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and indicates how the courts are handling these issues. Annotations on court cases are arranged in major categories: free appropriate public education, placement in the least restrictive environment, placement at no cost to the parent, due process procedures, discipline/expulsion, exhaustion of administrative remedies, miscellaneous cases decided under P.L. 94-142 or Section 504, cases that pose future P.L. 94-142 and Section 504 issues, and cases to note. Within each category the cases are listed chronologically with the most recent case first. (Author/SBH)
