July 28, 2013
BBI board member and civil rights attorney Matthew W. Dietz, the Public Interest Law Center at Florida State University College of Law, and North Florida Center for Equal Justice filed class action lawsuits in an effort to both force the State of Florida to free children who are institutionalized in nursing home care to the care of their families and the community, and to prevent the State of Florida from pressuring parents to place their children in more expensive nursing homes by reducing or eliminating home health care options.
Dietz, was recently interviewed by CBS Miami concerning this situtation.
The complaints were filed on behalf of approximately 300 children who are currently in nursing comes in the State of Florida and approximately 5,000 children who are at risk of unnecessary institutionalization.
Dietz is the founder of the Law Offices of Matthew W. Dietz, a law firm representing victims of discrimination. Dietz specializes in representing the community of persons with disability.
