2018 Grantee Case Update From Children’s Advocacy Institute

The Children’s Advocacy Institute (CAI), a 2018 Grantee of the Foundation, is moving closer to filing suit to establish nationally the constitutional right of foster children to attorney representation.

CAI is working with the assistance of outside pro bono counsel, local counsel, and the National Association of Counsel for Children. CAI is reviewing responses received pursuant to its recent public records act request to state and local officials, while completing other pre-filing discovery and related tasks; it hopes to file the complaint before the end of June 2018.
