CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The grandparents of two girls who were sexually abused by their parents are adding a new defendant in their lawsuit against the state’s child services agency.

A motion filed Friday by their attorney seeks to add Court Appointed Special Advocates of New Hampshire to the lawsuit. The grandparents are already suing the New Hampshire Division for Children, Youth and Families and Easter Seals for negligence.

All three entities were involved in supervision of the girls when their parents sexually abused them and videotaped it. The parents were convicted in 2014 and are serving a 25-years-to-life prison sentence.

Most of the information regarding CASA’s involvement is redacted due to confidentiality rules. Attorney Rus Rilee writes the grandparents want to waive those rules to hold the entities involved “publicly and legally” accountable.
