Severe physical attacks, extensive physical labor, and two meals a day.

That's what a 19-year-old man says he suffered from 2004 to 2008 while in the care of several foster homes, leaving him with physical limitations. He filed a civil complaint in federal court Friday against Luzerne County Children and Youth Services, accusing the agency of ignoring his grievances.
