Can Grandmother of Murdered Child Pursue Negligence Claims Against County Caseworkers?
Maternal Grandmother v. Hamilton County Department of Job & Family Services et al., Case No. 2020-0705
First District Court of Appeals (Hamilton County)
To challenge the statutory immunity provided to county child-protection caseworkers, may a plaintiff rely on ordinary notice-pleading requirements to advance the case?
When challenging the immunity provided to county child-protection caseworkers, must a plaintiff meet a heightened pleading standard, which requires specificity to prove wanton or reckless behavior?
To allege a claim that child-protection caseworkers failed to adequately investigate child abuse, must a plaintiff plead the injuries the child suffered were the same forms of abuse that triggered the abuse investigation?
