DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY, INSTITUTIONAL ABUSE INVESTIGATION UNIT VS. D.B./ DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES, INSTITUTIONAL ABUSE INVESTIGATION UNIT VS. A.G. A-5434-12T3

DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY, INSTITUTIONAL 
ABUSE INVESTIGATION UNIT VS. D.B./ DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES, INSTITUTIONAL 
ABUSE INVESTIGATION UNIT VS. A.G. 
A-5434-12T3/A-0276-13T3 (CONSOLIDATED) 
(NEWLY PUBLISHED OPINION FOR OCTOBER 20, 2015) 
Applying established case law to N.J.A.C. 10:129-7.3, effective April 1, 2013, the Institutional Abuse Investigation Unit of the Department of Children and Families appropriately entered findings of "not established" after investigating allegations against two defendants — a teacher's aide for a special needs child and an elementary school art teacher. The reports, however, must be rewritten to clarify that no determination as to the validity of the witness's statements was made.
