Child abuse victim attorney Thomas Cifarelli of The Cifarelli Law Firm recently filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles (Case No. BC615628) on behalf of a client who is alleging childhood sexual abuse by the defendant, which occurred between approximately 2001 and 2014 when the plaintiff was between 4 and 17 years old. The complaint also names as a defendant the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.

According to allegations in court documents, the plaintiff was placed in foster care in the home of a foster mother, who eventually adopted her, and that the County was responsible for her safety, including carefully investigating the foster mother’s home prior to the child’s placement there. The defendant, the adult biological son of the foster mother, regularly spent time at the home, where not only the plaintiff, but several other foster children and adopted children resided. According to court documents, the defendant allegedly regularly sexually abused the plaintiff and several other children in the home, beginning in or about 2001 and continuing through approximately 2014.

“Through the lawsuit we will determine how these alleged incidents were allowed to occur and what supervision, if any, was in place at the time of the alleged incidents,” said attorney for the plaintiff Thomas Cifarelli. “We are interested in speaking with any witnesses with knowledge of the facts.”
