Jeff Storms, along with Jeff Montpetit of SiebenCarey, filed a federal civil rights/wrongful death lawsuit in United States District Court, District of Minnesota, against Hennepin County, the agency’s personnel, and two Minnesota-based agencies and its staff members. The legal filing comes after the December 2014 suicide of “KZJ,” a six-year-old girl who was involuntarily removed from her mother’s care and placed into the Hennepin County foster care system in March 2014.
