Named as defendants are Governor Quinn, as well as Erwin McEwen, Director of DCFS, and D. Jean Ortega-Piron, Guardianship Guardian of DCFS.
The complaint explains that "The children bring this action challenging the failure of the defendant, Pat Quinn, Governor of the State of Illinois to implement a budget which funds the Department of Children and Family Services in a manner consistent with the Department's responsibilities to the children in its care."
As a result of the current state budget, the general revenue fund for the Illinois DCFS will be cut in half, ending "all counseling services to children who are in state care due to physical or sexual abuse, neglect or dependency," a decision already announced by Director McEwen.
