Description

Denver Westword finds that the guardian ad litem system in Colorado costs taxpayers $4.6 million per year, and is supposed to protect the rights of children whose futures are being decided in dependency and neglect proceedings. But because there are no standards of conduct, some attorneys make a mint off these cases, taking the flat $600 fee and never meeting or talking with the client. (Aug. 23, 1995)
