L.A. County orders agencies to cooperate in probe of leaks about child deaths

Aug 18, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, the lone dissenter, says officials are more concerned with disclosure of the information than problems in the child services department. The county CEO vehemently denies the allegation.

In a contentious 4-1 vote, Los Angeles County supervisors Tuesday ordered county departments to cooperate with an investigation into what they called the "inappropriate disclosure of confidential child welfare information" to the Los Angeles Times regarding the deaths of children who were being monitored by county workers.
