Elswit, Lawrence S.; Geetter, Erika; Goldberg, Judith A.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v32 n4 p292-303,319 Jul-Aug 1999
Describes the 1998 Guckenberger federal lawsuit from the perspective of attorneys who litigated on behalf of Boston University. Discusses events leading up to the lawsuit (which claimed Boston University failed to provide reasonable accommodations for a student with learning disabilities), policy changes at the university, the trial itself, and finally the court's complex decision, seen as mostly in the university's favor.
