Lost In The System

Lawyer Taking On OC Child Protective Services

Posted: Updated:

Brian Claypool is one of the lead attorneys in the Miramonte child abuse case. Now, he's taking on Orange County's child protective services.  Claypool is accusing CPS of engaging in child trafficking and exposing children to sexual abuse for financial gain.  All of this, after the airing of one of our stories of children "Lost In The System".

Claypool is calling for a state and federal investigation into Orange County's CPS Department.  He says he's filing a federal civil lawsuit against CPS.

Claypool is representing Ruby Dillon. A woman who says her 7 year old daughter was taken away from her after she reported suspected molestation by the father. The father denies the allegations.

Among the allegations by Claypool, that CPS abducted Dillon's daughter by "fabricating evidence, obstructing justice, committing perjury and violating the law." CPS officials wouldn't talk to us on camera but they issued the following statement: We will look into concerns raised and proceed accordingly.

Claypool claims to have proof that Orange County CPS is a motivated by state and federal funding and does not operate in the best interest of the children.
