The state Department of Social Services is the target of a federal class-action lawsuit filed by an Ogden woman to challenge an order that she return a purported $3,073 overpayment.

Amy L. Marturello, represented in the suit by the Ogden office of Utah Legal Services, contends that a state regulation governing recipients of federal Aid to Families with Dependent Children violates the U.S. Social Security Act.The regulation states that any AFDC recipient who fails to report income earned during a month in which she received assistance is ineligible for that month.
