Jenner & Block

Class Action Settlement Helps Thousands of Illinois Families

The firm successfully challenged the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services’ (DCFS) “Allegation #60,” a “catch-all” allegation that was often relied upon to investigate and “indicate” parents and caretakers for neglect, even when there was never an identified likelihood of harm to a child.  On January 9, 2015, the Cook County Circuit Court approved  and entered a final settlement between the DCFS  and plaintiffs represented by Jenner & Block in a class action lawsuit, Ashley M. v. DCFS.
