Lawyers Sue State
Over Adoption Backlog

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ --

 In an unusual legal action, attorneys and children's rights advocates, Helen Spohrer and Barry Newman, filed a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus in the First District Court of Appeal today. The filing, which comes just three days after National Adoption Day, asks The First District Court of Appeal to force Florida's Department of Children and Families to end an adoption backlog of more than 100 children in Duval County, Florida. "There are at least 100 children in Duval County who should have been adopted by now, but are caught in the system's red tape," said in a press conference held yesterday in Jacksonville.
