This case was a WIC 300(a) & (j)—physical abuse of a child, and risk to a sibling. An infant was found to have bilateral subdural hematomas, and bilateral retinal hemorrhages after a seizure. The child had numerous medical issues since birth, including being born with Methamphetamine and opioids in her system. (The baby was a foster child. My client was the foster parent.). CASE DISMISSED in the middle of trial via Directed Verdict from the Judge. The court found that there was no risk to the children and dismissed the case. Our experts showed that the child suffered birth injuries and/or pre-birth injuries, and was not the victim of abuse by the foster parents.


This case was a WIC 300(a) petition for physical abuse of a child. The infant suffered a broken arm, and the parents were accused of child abuse. CASE DISMISSED before trial.

This was a WIC 300(a) petition. Infant was found with facial swelling and bruising and subconjunctival hemorrhage of the eye.
