Scripps News Coverage: Lieb at Law Fights for Fairness Against Discrimination and Retaliation at Three Village School District

Lieb at Law is standing up for the rights of families and their children in school systems. We're representing the Graziano family, who faced discrimination and retaliation at their son's school.

Despite having an Individualized Education Program (IEP), which specified a minor student's access to a single-occupancy bathroom, as a reasonable accommodation, the school failed to honor these accommodations and actively denied the minor student's use of the bathroom. When Mr. Graziano advocated for his son's rights, the school retaliated against him by banning him from all school district property. This denial caused unnecessary stress and robbed the family of cherished memories for each of the family's three children who attended the district.

We've filed complaints with the New York State Division of Human Rights, and we're fighting for justice. No parent should face retaliation for advocating for their child's rights, and no child should suffer because their disability accommodations aren't honored.

We want to make it clear - schools must be welcoming places for parents and students alike. We're determined to protect families from facing such discrimination in the future.

Stay tuned for updates as we work tirelessly for justice. Remember, you have rights, and Lieb at Law is here to defend them.
