Pete says, "Exceptions to the rule" cause the body of law to change and grow. Unique facts may compel judges to write a decision contrary to current case law. Don't rely on the opinions and biases of others. Read the facts in cases for yourself.

Wrightslaw: Special Education Legal Developments and Cases 2019. will help you understand how special education issues evolve, identify unwritten factors that may affect legal decisions, and how the law is evolving in your Circuit. The search feature makes it easy to find relevant information about legal issues and in cases.

The Table of Decisions includes the date, court, synopsis of legal issues, outcome, and prevailing party in the cases. Each case in the Table of Decisions is linked to a detailed summary of the case that includes the outcome and prevailing party.

Two decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court include full text of decisions, Syllabi prepared by the Reporter of Decisions for the convenience of the reader; Transcripts of Remarks by the Justices who wrote the decisions.
