Christina C. v. County of Orange, G047805

Summary judgment in favor of defendant-county, its Social Services Agency, and several of its social workers, on plaintiffs' claims arising from defendants' decision to remove plaintiff's 10-year old child from plaintiff-mother's care and place him with father, only to return the child to plaintiff-mother when he fared poorly in father's care, is affirmed, where: 1) plaintiffs forfeit their appellate claims by failing to cite to the record; 2) trial court did not err in concluding that public employee immunity barred plaintiffs' claims; and 3) the dependency court is the true target for their core claim of wrongful delegation and the court is absolutely immune.
