A civil trial in Staten Island involving Children’s Services and top federal lawyer was ruled a mistrial. She indicated that Children’s Services entered her home in Staten Island and conducted an illegal search of the home.
The jury in this case didn’t feel that the cps or caseworkers were acted irresponsibly but did award $100,000 to the woman. New York Family Lawyers report that the woman refused to allow the caseworkers into her home when they came searching for her brother’s three young children over a year ago. Brooklyn Federal Judge David Trager said it appears that the jury thinks that the city should foot the bill on this one.
Massachusetts authorities were investigating allegations of child abuse and thought that the children might be in the home, however, the out of state court order was not valid in New York. And, as it all turned out, the children were not in her home. New York Family Lawyers may be needed to help with the details of this case especially since children are involved.
