Suit against DSHS and Docs for Foster Child's Death

The foster mother has already entered an Alford plea and been sentenced for the death by dehydration of a child in her care. Now a civil suit has been filed against DSHS and two doctors who, the complaint alleges, should have noticed the child's decline in health (as well as the condition of other children in the woman's care) and reported it. Suits against DSHS seem comonplace; suing the child's doctors is unusual. The foster mother's case was in Spokane; the article doesn't say where the civil suit was filed. 2 doctors, DSHS sued in death of 7-year-old, Seattle Times, Dec. 8, 2007.
