TULSA, OK -- There are new developments in the federal lawsuit against Oklahoma's child welfare agency.

Federal appeals judges are considering whether the lawsuit should remain a class action suit. A federal judge ruled earlier this year that all 10,000 children in state custody should be party to the lawsuit against DHS.

DHS attorneys say that judge over-stepped his bounds and not all children in state custody are at risk.

Children's Rights, which helped file the lawsuit in 2008, disagrees.

Both sides argued their cases in a Denver courtroom. No decision has been made yet.
