Disability Rights Ohio files federal lawsuit against child residential treatment facility Buckeye Ranch for denying access to facility, children

"Disability Rights Ohio (DRO) has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio against The Buckeye Ranch, a 106-bed child residential treatment facility in Franklin County. The suit was filed in response to The Buckeye Ranch denying DRO access to video surveillance footage of documented incidents of abuse of four children at the facility in late July, as well as denying access to monitor the facility and speak to children currently receiving care there. As the federally and state-designated Protection & Advocacy (P&A) system in Ohio, DRO has broad authority to monitor any facility or service provider in the state providing care or treatment to individuals with disabilities, or to investigate incidents of abuse and neglect of individuals with disabilities."
