Greenspoon Marder Prevails On Two Levels of Litigation On Behalf of the School District of Manatee County
Feb 23, 2021
ORLANDO, FL – February 23, 2021 – Greenspoon Marder prevailed on behalf of our client, the School District of Manatee County, at the Second District Court of Appeal. The appellate court entered a per curiam affirmed decision, affirming the lower court’s dismissal of the litigation with prejudice.
The litigation began when the father of a School District of Manatee County student filed a suit challenging a suspension and disciplinary placement received by his child. Greenspoon Marder moved to dismiss the suit on numerous grounds including jurisdiction, mootness, and failure to state a claim. The Court agreed with Greenspoon Marder’s position and dismissed the case with prejudice. The Plaintiff appealed, with the Greenspoon Marder team prevailing once again in the appellate court.
The Greenspoon Marder team consisted of senior counsel
Tina Garcia and of counsel Amy Pitsch.
