The County of Orange and the City of Costa Mesa recently settled a civil rights action brought by the mother and grandmother of a minor alleging the infant was removed from the family’s home, without a warrant and in the absence of any emergency, in violation of the family’s constitutional rights to familial association free from unwarranted government interference. The County of Orange and City of Costa Mesa, while denying the allegations of the complaint, agreed to pay a total of $70,000 and conduct a comprehensive review of their child removal policies to settle the case.
