Information on ADA Lawsuit Involving Care of Students with Diabetes in California Schools
On August 12, 2013, the California Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling in a case involving diabetes care for children in California's public schools.
The Court overturned a decision of the California Court of Appeal involving the access of children with diabetes to insulin while at school, and ruled that state law permits school personnel who are not nurses to help children with diabetes by administering needed insulin to those who cannot self-administer.
