Chapter 11 covers three cases involving child abuse: Landeros v. Flood, People v. Stritzinger, and DeShaney v. Winnebago. Although it is now common practice for individuals who care for, educate or treat children to be required to report child abuse, these cases highlight the evolution of that responsibility. Other themes include confidentiality of the reporting and the limits of state power in preventing child abuse.
