Play associated audio

WASHINGTON (AP) A federal judge has found D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty in contempt and has refused to end federal oversight of the city's child welfare agency.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan issued the ruling on Monday. The Child and Family Services Agency had been ordered by federal courts to improve the care and protection of abused and neglected children. The agency remains under the watch of a court monitor.

In his 46-page ruling, Hogan said the city has not provided a fully satisfactory child welfare system.

D.C. attorney general Peter Nickles says the administration does not agree with the ruling and will file an appeal.
