With the support of Yetter Coleman, Haynes & Boone, and Canales & Simonson, M.D. v. Perry was filed against Texas’s Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) charging that the constitutional rights violations of children who have been in the Texas foster care system for at least a year and failing to ensure their safety and well-being while in its custody.

Paul Yetter, Dori Goldman, and Christopher Porter lead the firm’s efforts.
