Nebraska - Douglas County Board votes to drop guardian ad litem contracts

Omaha Metro

The Douglas County Board voted unanimously Tuesday to drop its contracts with attorneys who act as guardians ad litem for children in juvenile court, board chairwoman Mary Ann Borgeson said.

Critics have long complained that many guardians don’t meet their statutory obligations to their juvenile clients and that the contracts lack accountability. A report last year by the state auditor faulted the county for poor oversight, though county officials said they weren’t sure how much authority they actually have to audit the work.
