Edward P. Leibensperger was quoted in the July 31 issue of the AmLaw Daily in an article regarding the state of Michigan's agreement to overhaul its foster care system as part of a federal class action suit settlement. Mr. Leibensperger led the McDermott pro bono team that helped to secure the settlement. "There were deficiencies in the system that allowed the abuse and neglect to occur and continue," he said of the treatment Michigan foster care children received. He noted that the settlement will bring help to a group typically unable to fight for itself. "It's real change for a whole class of people," he said.
