Issues

Bethany Christian Services, a child placement agency, removed foster children placed with plaintiffs after the foster mother experienced a stroke and seizure. The agency said they were concerned about the foster mother's medical condition. Despite letters from the foster mother's doctors stating she had no limitations in her ability to parent, the foster children were removed and not returned.

Status

Plaintiffs filed their complaint in federal court on April 26, 2004. Settlement was reached in early 2005.
