Richman, Daniel A.
DePaul Law Review, v27 n4 p1199-218 Sum 1978
In Gurmankin v. Costanzo a U.S. District Court held that a policy of not considering handicapped persons for teaching positions violated the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because it contained an irrebuttable presumption that the handicapped are not competent to teach. The doctrine of irrebuttable presumption is analyzed. (BH)
