Children's Rights

Children’s Rights, along with local co-counsel in Florida and New York, filed this damages lawsuit on April 29, 2009 on behalf of 10 special needs children who were placed under the care of Judith Leekin, who repeatedly abused, tortured, neglected and imprisoned the children. The lawsuit named the City of New York, the Administration of Children’s Services (ACS) and the foster care agencies that placed the children in Leekin’s care.
