Children who had been adjudicated in need of services brought a civil action

recommended that they be returned to an abusive home. The State contends
that it is immune from such action. The St. Joseph Superior Court
dismissed the action, and the Court of Appeals affirmed. See H.B. v.
State, 713 N.E.2d 300 (Ind. Ct. App. 1999). The plaintiffs seek transfer.
