Court: Texas had no right to take polygamists' children

Court: Texas had no right to take polygamists' children

The state of Texas should not have removed children from a polygamist sect's ranch because it didn't prove that they were in "imminent danger," an appeals court ruled Thursday.

In the ruling, a three-judge panel did not order that the children be returned to their families on the Yearning for Zion Ranch in Eldorado, Texas.

Instead, the judges gave the lower court 10 days to vacate an order placing the children in state custody.

Note: Good for them! Now with the biggest screw-up in CPS history behind us, maybe this is the time to start a National Bitch About CPS Campaign.
