R.E., M.E., et al v. NYC Dep’t of Education

 In resolving a central question presented by these appeals, we hold that courts must
evaluate the adequacy of an IEP prospectively as of the time of the parents’ placement
decision and may not consider  “retrospective” testimony regarding services not listed in
the IEP.  However, we reject a rigid “four-corners rule” that would prevent a court from
considering evidence explicating the written terms of the IEP.”
