HIGH SCHOOLER WITH DISABILITIES DENIED RIGHT TO PLAY BASKETBALL

B.M., a HS student with disabilities, filed a lawsuit challenging the denial of eligibility to play basketball by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA), and Section IV of NYSPHSAA. B.M. loves basketball and has been a proud member of his high school’s team for four seasons. However, his disabilities have limited his play, including only playing eight minutes in one season. “I've played basketball since I was in first grade and enjoy being part of a team,” said B.M. “Being competitive motivates me to want to go to school even when I'm hurting.”
