– Woman sues state, alleging emotional, sexual abuse in Vancouver foster home

This should be an interesting case to follow.

An 18-year-old Vancouver woman has filed a lawsuit against the state’s Department of Social and Health Services, alleging she was emotionally and sexually abused while in foster care as a young child.
The suit, filed Tuesday in Clark County Superior Court, claims that DSHS was negligent “in the licensing and placement of the plaintiff into foster care, the supervision of the plaintiff’s foster care family … and their investigation into complaints of abuse.”
