Attorneys John Doak and Elizabeth George recently prevailed in the case known locally as the "Justice for Jasper" case. John and Liz successfuly advocated for corrective action to be taken for a grade-school student who utilizes a service dog. The impartial hearing officer for the State of Illinois found that the school has denied the student a "free and proper education." The school has been ordered to pay for the expenses incurred by the family in enrolling the student in another area school and to form a plan to provide the student with appropriate services. The plan must be approved by the state.
