Man drops federal lawsuit against Westmoreland County Children's Bureau
A federal judge on Friday approved a Tennessee man's motion to drop his federal lawsuit against the Westmoreland County Children's Bureau for injuries his son, who suffers from muscular dystrophy, suffered in 2009 while in the care of a foster family.
Greg Barkley of Pikeville, Tenn., plans to pursue his claims against the bureau in Westmoreland County Common Pleas, according to his motion dismissing the federal lawsuit. U.S. District Judge Mark Hornak approved the motion.
Barkley claims in the lawsuit that his son suffered a fractured leg, back pain and loss of movement in his arms while he was with the foster family.
