A new class-action lawsuit is charging that investigators from the City’s Administration for Children’s Services violated families’ rights during searches of their homes.

The suit claims the agency’s caseworkers lied and withheld information from parents, and threatened to involve police or remove children in order to enter homes without court orders.

The plaintiffs also denounce the agency’s disproportionate use of the practices on low-income Black and Latino families.

The suit requests for money damages and an end to what the plaintiffs consider as unconstitutional practices.

Shalonda Curtis-Hackett, one of the named plaintiffs, and David Shalleck-Klein, executive director and founder of Family Justice Law Center, which helps families mistreated by the child welfare system, joined NY1 political anchor Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” Wednesday to discuss the suit.
