The DeShaney Case: Child Abuse, Family Privacy, and the Dilemma of State Intervention (Book)
Title: The DeShaney Case: Child Abuse, Family Privacy, and the Dilemma of State Intervention
Author: Lynne Curry
Abstract: This monograph is the first historical analysis of the landmark 1989 U.S. Supreme Court case, DeShaney v, Winnebago County. It addresses both the criminal and civil cases that resulted from a case of child abuse in Winnebago County, Wisconsin. The civil case challenged that state's child protection services, arguing that a four-year-old child's rights to life and liberty under the Fourteenth Amendment had been violated by a social worker's failure to remove the child from his dangerous home despite multiple reports of physical abuse. Ultimately, Joshua DeShaney lost his case before the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled that children do not have a constitutional right to protection from their parents' violence.
