Estate of Springer Cannot Sue State

The Michigan Court of Appeals in Grand Rapids concluded that the estate of Calista Springer cannot sue the state over the 16-year-old’s death four years ago.

The opinion was rendered in response to Springer’s grandmother – Three Rivers resident Suzanne Langdon – who sued the State Department of Human Services and St. Joseph County’s Child Protective Services in 2010.

Each of the three lawsuits filed by Langdon sought compensation in excess of $75,000 and requested a jury trial.

According to the lawsuits, Langdon held state workers accountable for her granddaughter’s death in February 2008.

Langdon has acted as a representative of the Centreville teenager’s estate.
