This suit challenged a rule that prohibits anyone with a felony record from volunteering in any capacity in the school.  The petitioner is a former convict whose son faced serious medical challenges that required the constant presence of a nurse.  The petitioner sought to accompany his son to school when the nurse was unavailable.  The school refused.

The ACLU-NH argued that the rule was fundamentally unfair to a parent who posed no risk of harm to children. The ACLU-NH’s brief can be found here.  Unfortunately, the petitioner’s son died while this action was pending.
