A child advocacy group is asserting that a decision by Rhode Island officials to release an 18-year-old from state care was linked to the teen's involvement in a lawsuit against the state.

The Providence Journal reports the group Children's Rights suggests in court papers that the child, referred to as "Terrence T," was released from foster care to "moot his claims" in the 2007 lawsuit, which seeks an overhaul of the state's foster care system.

When protective services take children from their parents, state law says a judge must first personally review the case and sign off. But that was not happening in one of Michigan's busiest courts.

Lawmakers are fast-tracking legislation to hire 50 new Child Protective Services workers with a $4.4 million appropriation that could be on Gov. Jan Brewer's desk early next week.

The governor requested the emergency funding in her budget proposal, and legislative leaders said Tuesday they expect it to sail easily through both chambers. "It will go expeditiously," said House Appropriations Committee Chairman John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills. "The safety of children is paramount and they clearly need the additional money." The funding will allow the Department of Economic Security to hire an additional 50 employees, including 31 CPS caseworkers. CPS currently is authorized for 970 caseworkers.
