Abstract On June 1, 2021, the ACLU of the District of Columbia’s oldest case came to a close, with the court’s approval of a settlement agreement in LaShawn A. v. Muriel Bowser, a class action that, over the course of 32 years, transformed the D.C. foster care system from a dysfunctional mess to what the judge called “a national model.”
