Maclaren has been the target of many lawsuits and abuse allegations in the past, with public outcry over the Probation Department’s treatment of children. In 1984, many employees at MacLaren were arrested for crimes committed against children in their care.
In 2019, California passed the California Child Victims Act. It took effect in January 2020. It provides a “look back” window of three years, allowing childhood sexual abuse victims in California to file a lawsuit against their abuser and other responsible parties, regardless of how long ago the abuse happened.
A new legal action in 2020 state law set up a three-year window in California for victims of childhood sexual abuse to seek out redress for past incidents. “The history of allegations of abuse at MacLaren Hall is not lost on us and drives me every day to see through critical reforms for the over 30,000 children in our child welfare system,” said Hilda Solis, the County Supervisor who oversees the district MacLaren was in.
