Re: can i sue the cys
Yes; if your rights were not respected; if the CYS workers violated the law or their own rules; if actions which should be voluntary were coerced you would have a basis for a lawsuit.
Re: can i sue the cys
While it is true you can sue anyone for just about anything in reality its not that easy.
First, suing C & Y while satisfying on some level rarely results in a verdict in your favor.
Second, if the suit is based on what happened in 1986 you can NOT sue. You had 2 years from then to file your lawsuit. If you did NOT then the statute of limitations will bar you from suing.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me. The initial consultation is free.
