“The DHS case worker advised Ashley ... they were going to see her father in the hospital. Ashley ... was taken to the Department of Human Services, detained and questioned regarding matters unknown to her. It was only then that DHS employees discovered they had taken the wrong child,” according to the lawsuit.
The family's attorney, Mikel Flores, declined Thursday to comment on the lawsuit.
The judge on Thursday asked how Ashley Solmi was doing.
“She's OK. She's a teenager,” Kimberly Solmi responded.
The judge then asked if the teen had any lasting effects from the incident.
“No,” the mother replied.
Ashley Solmi's share of the two settlements is $12,184.75, court orders show. Her attorney's share for his services and costs is $6,815.25.
Ashley Solmi will not have access to the funds until she turns 18.
The DHS settlement will be paid from insurance funds, Freeman said.
