Judge blocks adoption subsidy limits

A federal judge in  Kansas City agreed Wednesday, August 18, to temporarily block a new Missouri law that would limit monthly support checks for certain families who adopt foster children. . . . It comes after a class-action lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in  Kansas City accused Gov. Matt Blunt and Gary Sherman, director of the Missouri Department of Social Services, of failing to protect the interests of abused and neglected children. By Cheryl Wittenauer, The Associated Press.
