Statute of limitations. The Third Circuit has held that the two-year statute of limitations for an IDEA claim also applies to a claim brought under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act rather than applying an analogous state statute of limiations. The Court's decision was based on its conclusion that IDEA and section 504 do similar statutory work. The Court noted that this was an issue of first impression.
