Child Welfare Lawsuit Settled

"Fulton County must provide "adequate, effective and zealous" attorneys to represent abused and neglected children in the child welfare system, according to a lawsuit settlement reached Monday.The settlement resolves a 2002 suit that accused the county of failing to provide children with adequate legal representation during foster care hearings. Without a legal champion, the lawsuit charged, some children lingered in foster care limbo or were returned to abusive homes." By Craig Schneider, ajc.com Link to Article (last visited 2-15-06 NVS)
