YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - A former northeast Ohio children’s services director is asking a judge to dismiss a federal civil rights complaint related to a teenager’s 2013 beating death that led to prison sentences for the boy’s mother and her boyfriend.

The administrator of 14-year-old Teddy Foltz’s estate filed the complaint in November against David Arnold, who had been interim director of the Mahoning County Children Services Board. The complaint sought $3 million in damages and alleged that Arnold violated the teen’s constitutional due process rights by failing to investigate abuse reports.

In a court filing this week, an assistant county prosecutor representing Arnold asked that the case be dismissed. She argues that Arnold wasn’t served with the complaint within the required timeframe and that, consequently, the court doesn’t have personal jurisdiction over him.
