Cambron-McCabe, Nelda H.
NOLPE School Law Journal, v10 n2 p99-108 1982
Delineates recent legal developments in school district liability under Section 1983 of the U.S. Code (Civil Rights Act of 1871). Discusses municipal and school district immunity and concludes that districts are immune from punitive damages but not from monetary and injunctive relief when official actions violate individuals' federal rights.
