Hard to Police What Goes on in Foster Homes

Report: N.J. spent approximately $51.7 million on 317 child neglect and abuse lawsuits

NJ spent approximately $517 million on 317 child neglect and abuse lawsuits and still, there is little hope that the massive expense really made a difference because it’s too hard to police what really goes on in foster homes. Abused children should sue the system that fails them.

New Jersey settled the following lawsuits:

$800,000 settlement after 21-month old died in a foster home

$4.5 million settlement after 17-year-old boy sexually abused by a foster parent when he was age six

$600,000 settlement after 17-year-old girl sexually abused by her foster father beginning at the age of seven

$12.5 million settlement to four brothers, starved and beaten by their foster mother
