CASE ENTRY

New York State Citizens’ Coalition for Children v. Poole

Federal law provides money to states to assist foster parents with the care of foster children. Can foster parents sue in federal court if the state has been unforthcoming with the money? Second Circuit (deepening a circuit split): That’s the bargain the states struck in exchange for the money. Dissent: That apparently comes as a surprise to the 14 states that submitted an amicus brief disagreeing with the majority.
