Arce v. County of Los Angeles, B231941

In plaintiffs' suit against a county, Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, alleging that their constitutional rights were violated when their children were detained without judicial authorization or adequate cause, judgment of the trial court in favor of the defendants is reversed where: 1) the trial court erred in dismissing plaintiffs' section 1983 claims against the county defendants; and 2) the trial court erred in dismissing plaintiffs' section 1983 claim against the hospital defendants where Penal Code section 11172 provides the hospital defendants immunity to plaintiffs' state law claims only.
