Case Summary

On May 30, 2013, an eleven-year-old child in the custody of the South Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS), filed a lawsuit in the Court of Common Pleas, Abbeville County, South Carolina under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and state law against SCDSS, the Boys Home of the South (BHOTS), and individuals employed by both organizations. Plaintiff, represented by Children's Rights, Inc. and private counsel, asked the court for damages, punitive damages, and attorneys' fees. Plaintiff claimed that Def…

On May 30, 2013, an eleven-year-old child in the custody of the South Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS), filed a lawsuit in the Court of Common Pleas, Abbeville County, South Carolina under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and state law against SCDSS, the Boys Home of the South (BHOTS), and individuals employed by both organizations. Plaintiff, represented by Children's Rights, Inc. and private counsel, asked the court for damages, punitive damages, and attorneys' fees. Plaintiff claimed that Defendants' policies and customs failed to comply with federal and state law, which violated Plaintiff's Fourteenth Amendment rights, and that their gross negligence caused him permanent mental harm and injury. Specifically, Plaintiff claimed that while he was placed at BHOTS--a "low management" group home licensed by SCDSS that did not require awake staff at all times--he was repeatedly attacked and sexually assaulted by older boys at the home. He claimed that Defendants violated his rights to a safe and secure placement in state custody, his right to adequate supervision, and his right to prompt mental health treatment under both federal and state law.

On June 28, 2013, Defendants removed the case to the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina.

Over the next few months, the parties engaged in fact and expert discovery. As discovery proceeded, Plaintiff agreed to stipulate to the dismissal of several of the individual Defendants. The remainder of the Defendants, including SCDSS and BHOTS, moved for summary judgment.

On February 4, 2014, while the motions for summary judgment were pending, Plaintiff and the BHOTS Defendants reached a settlement for an undisclosed sum of money, including $188,285.27 in costs. The settlement document did disclose, however, that as a result of the litigation, BHOTS was ceasing operations and would be filing for articles of dissolution with the South Carolina Attorney General. The Court (Judge Anderson) later approved the settlement on March 10, 2014.

On February 14, 2014, the Court (Judge Anderson), in a brief, two-page order, denied the SCDSS Defendants' motion for summary judgment. The Court simply stated that, "[b]ased on the filings of both sides, and their arguments during the hearing, this Court finds that genuine issues of material fact exist."

On March 28, 2014, following mediation and shortly before jury selection was to begin, Plaintiff and the SCDSS Defendants (the remaining Defendants) reached a settlement for an undisclosed sum of money, including $17,186.58 in costs. With the SCDSS settlement, all parties had either settled or been dismissed, and the case concluded.
