Michigan State Lawsuit

Settles Class Action Over Child Welfare

Michigan State Settles with Children's Rights in Class Action

Days before it was set to go to trial, the state of Michigan has settled with Children's Rights, a New York based advocacy group, regarding a federal class action suit it brought against the state's child welfare system.

The settlement mandates extensive reforms and federal court oversight of Michigan's child welfare system, and is the latest in a series of lawsuits that have forced other state child welfare systems to change. According to Edward Woods III, spokesperson for DHS, the settlement will cost Michigan about $50 million annually for the next four years.
