The County of Los Angeles settled a civil rights action brought by the grandparents of two minors for the warrantless removal of the children from their home in violation of the family’s constitutional rights to familial association free from unwarranted government interference. The County of Los Angeles, while denying the allegations of the complaint, agreed to pay $220,000 to settle the case. Approval of the settlement by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is pending.
The County Board of Supervisors Approved the Settlement on August 4, 2009.
