NY: Lawyers for Child Welfare and Legal Aid Under Scrutiny for Facebook Posts
New York Times – August 30, 2017
The disparaging banter was the kind of back-and-forth seen on social media and celebrity gossip sites, but it was apparently an exchange among three lawyers of the Administration for Children’s Services, the city’s child welfare agency, and one from the Legal Aid Society, which represents many children and parents in court proceedings. It was unclear whether the people ridiculed in the Facebook posts were involved in the lawyers’ cases, but David Hansell, the commissioner of A.C.S., said that whoever the people were, the conduct of lawyers was unacceptable.
