Fed Oversight Ends at Nebraska Center

Seven years of federal oversight ended this week at the Beatrice State Developmental Center, the state-run home for people with disabilities that has long faced accusations of abuse and substandard care.
Recent reforms at BSDC are a success story, attorneys for the state and the U.S. Department of Justice wrote last month in asking a federal judge to end the oversight and dismiss the federal complaint filed against the state in 2008.U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf granted the request Monday.
