Is the foster care system in Massachusetts broken? A child welfare advocacy group says yes -- profoundly broken.
The group Children's Rights released a new wave of reports claiming abuse, neglect and inadequate organizational support within the Massachusetts foster care system.
The group also filed a class-action suit against the state in 2010. The case is currently pending in Springfield Federal Court and set to go to trial next January.
