V.S. v. Allenby, B194798
In an action for benefits beyond an initial-180 day period pursuant to the Aid to Families with Dependent Children-Foster Care (AFDC-FC) program while plaintiffs' great nieces and nephews were in their care, dismissal of plaintiffs' remaining claims as moot is reversed where the trial court should have expanded its ruling to mandate Department of Social Services' (DSS) compliance with the law.
