Judge allows lawsuit against Indiana child welfare agency:
A federal judge’s decision will allow most of a lawsuit to move forward accusing Indiana’s child welfare agency of inadequately protecting thousands of children in its care. The suit alleges that Indiana’s Department of Child Services doesn’t protect 22,000 children with open child welfare cases. The Journal Gazette reports that U.S. District Court Judge Richard Young’s ruling allows two of three counts to proceed in the lawsuit, which was filed against Indiana’s Department of Child Services.
