National Litigation Update: Significant Court Opinions Affecting Child Welfare Agencies
Notable in the past several years have been a variety of important appellate court decisions within the Federal and State courts that have addressed issues of child abuse and neglect as well as the response to reported cases on the part of Child Protective Service (CPS) agencies. This session reviews cases in many different areas related to child abuse and neglect, including parental rights challenges, complaints about investigative practices, agency procedures regarding confidentiality and privacy, and child welfare casework liability and immunity. Focus is on reported court opinions and class action consent decrees in the past two years.
