RC v Walley Consent Decree

RC v Walley was a case filed in U.S. District Court against the Commissioner of the Department of Human Resources. The case is based on a child, RC, who was in foster care in the state of Alabama. RC was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder and it was alleged that inadequate services were offered to help this child deal with that diagnosis. As a result the RC Decree was handed down in an effort to reform the foster care system in Alabama. It established guidelines for the Department of Human Resources, and an accountability plan to ensure that all counties in Alabama were abiding by these guidelines.
