ARE WE LEARNING FROM OUR MISTAKES?-
SMG vs. SCO and NYC ACS 14 Civ. 815 Manhattan Federal Court Judge Broderick USDJ and Magistrate Netburn - plaintiffs’ assert foster care agency SCO and ACS  same systemic failures were present in Fall 2012 when 7 year old boy SMG placed in a SCO foster care by ACS was repeatedly sexually abused, where the same revolving door of multiple social workers
inconsistently saw SMG but did not establish consistent care to listen for SMG's cries out from danger;  while abuse was ongoing they improperly cut off communication from his mother whose instinctual ability to protect could have stopped the harm. Once reported  SCO  minimized their role. 4 month delay instead of prompt Sex abuse trauma therapy. SCO gross deviation of record keeping. Instead of 5 days required entries, they delayed record entries 30 up to 54 days after the events, thereby minimizing the recorded details of their failures and prevented monitoring supervision.
