U.S. to Pay $1.2 Million in Attorneys Fees in Migrant Minors Case

The motion for fees came in litigation concerning the treatment of children in immigrant detention. The lawsuit, brought in 1993, led to the Flores settlement, a bedrock agreement setting minimal standards of care for detained children. 

The plaintiffs are represented by Peter Schey and Carlos Holguin of the Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law; Bill Ong Hing of the University of San Francisco School of Law Immigration Clinic; Stephen Rosenbaum of La Raza Centro Legal Inc.; Neha Desai, Mishan Wroe, Melissa Adamson and Diane de Gramont of the National Center for Youth Law; and Leecia Welch of Children's Rights.
