Memorandum of Decision and Order: Richard Davis vs. MIAA

"Memorandum of Decision and Order" issued by Massachusetts Superior Court Justice James P. Donohue. Judge Donohue granted the request of a homeschooled athlete for a preliminary injunction against the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and local school officials. The homeschooled athlete was thus permitted "the right to try out for and, if she makes the team, participate on the Norton High School girls softball team..." while further legal action was pending. Not long after the judge issued this injunction, the MIAA rescinded its blanket prohibition against homeschooled athletes and, instead, promulgated regulations that now leave the decision about allowing the participation of homeschooled athletes in school sports in the hands of local officials.
