CASE ENTRY

Demaree v. Pederson

Peoria, Ariz. parents take completely innocent nakey photos of their young children, so in years to come they can reminisce, “look at their cute little butts.” Child services take the children without a warrant or court order. The kids spend two days in foster care and a month with grandparents before they’re allowed home. (According to news reports, the mother was suspended from her job for a year). Ninth Circuit (with four separate opinions): No qualified immunity for the social workers.
