Children of the Moon Children’s Home Hit with Federal Suit for Child Abuse-Other Victims Please Come Forward for Class Action Suit

“The Valley of the Moon Children’s Home has been hit with a federal civil rights lawsuit by a group of former foster children alleging abuses at the facility dating back to 1995.

Among the allegations are that children awaiting adoption were strip-searched, locked in their rooms and had possessions such as cellphones taken from them, in violation of the state Welfare and Institutions Code and federal Civil Rights Act.

Filed earlier this month in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, the suit seeks an end to policies and practices it contends are unconstitutional, as well as punitive and compensatory damages.

So far, the case involves just five plaintiffs, but attorneys are seeking approval to form a class-action suit that could take in hundreds more, they say.”
