Adoption Agency Sued

Once again - as in the case I recently reported of the sentencing Attorney Kevin Cohen - this time an adoption agency is under fire for not producing the goods that were paid for.  Have yet to see an agency or practitioner charged with coercion, however!  Only when they bite the hand that feeds the industry are they censure din any way.

Now-defunct private adoption agency at Little Rock, Ark., sued by state's attorney general

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The office of Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel says a consumer-protection lawsuit has been filed against a now-defunct Little Rock adoption agency, its owners, and a former employee.

A news release from McDaniel's office Thursday said the suit was filed in Pulaski County Circuit Court against Adoption Advantage Inc.; its owners, Ed Webb and Donna Gail Webb; and former employee Jaclyn Potter.

The suit claims consumers were promised an infant for adoption in return for payment of thousands of dollars of fees. The release said such promises were made when no baby was available.

The suit seeks a court order barring the defendants from offering to arrange adoptions and also seeks restitution for consumers who paid the company money, but got no baby.
