America’s highest court has sided with a teenage girl with cerebral palsy who has spent years fighting school officials for the right to bring her service dog to class.

The parents of Ehlena Fry, 13, from Michigan, have for years been involved in an on-and-off battle with officials to allow her to take her dog, Wonder, a cross between a golden retriever and a poodle and nicknamed a goldendoodle, to class with her.
