Abstract This lawsuit alleges violations of a 1997 settlement agreement in Flores v. Reno that set national standards for the treatment and placement of immigrant minors. Five immigrant children challenged the government for unlawfully detaining them in jail-like conditions for prolonged periods, drugging them with powerful psychotropic medication without consent, arbitrarily denying release to their family, and denying access to legal counsel.
