A LaPorte grandparent is suing the over a state adoption fee that was promised about the same time the Department of Child Services began reverting millions back to the state budget.

Indiana is about to lose federal money because it is one of the state’s that decided not to follow federal guidelines to prevent rape in its prisons and detention centers.

Lynn Toops, attorney Cohen & Malad, LLP

Connie Lawson, Indiana Secretary of State

Douglas Garrison, Chief Communications Officer, Ind. Department of Correction

Joseph Novosel Jr. President Northwest Indiana Railroad Preservation Society
