Virginia McKale, who was featured in an October Legal Intelligencer article about systemic problems in Philadelphia’s child welfare system in which she said her grandson had been sexually abused while in a foster home, has been ordered to cease speaking publicly about the matter.

On Oct. 30, Philadelphia Family Court Judge Joseph Fernandes signed off on a pair of gag orders, requested by the city’s Department of Human Services. The orders also revoke McKale’s unsupervised visits with her two grandchildren and state that further visitation must be supervised.
