Subject: Langley case

 
Sen. Hargrove, Sen. Stevens, Rep. Kagi, Rep. Haler:
 
I am writing to you concerning the case of Amy and Dick Langley of Arlington, and the foster child, S.
 
As you can tell from the attached documentation, I have been involved in this case for a long time.  The highlights:
Everyone who has opposed Alisha Jackman's plan to reunify this family has been removed from the case, one at a time.  This has been, in fact, everyone.  The child is scheduled to be removed on Saturday, Feb. 7.  I have asked Randy Hart to put a hold on this and investigate these issues.  I have heard no response.
 
Every document you see attached to this e-mail has been given by the department to the birth parent attorneys, along with unredacted information on the foster families, including names, addresses, and the names and addresses of their parents.  This breach of confidentiality calls into question the very integrity of the department.
 
Please act to prevent a tragedy.  I fear this may have a horrible outcome.
 
Thank you,
 
Gary Malkasian
