This week the Governor signed into law HB 1252, which expands the statute of limitations in special education due process hearings from one year to two years. The law does not have immediate effect, going into effect on September 1, 2022.
As explained in previous alerts, this move will likely have significant impact in special education litigation in Texas. Primarily, we expect that this move will result in the expanded scope of each hearing and an increase in the associated costs of these hearings, both financial and logistical. This move may also increase the number of hearings brought across the state.
