Today a Texas appeals court ruled against CPS in the FLDS class action case. The court's holding that there was not sufficient evidence that the children were in a position to suffer immediate harm seems pretty obvious, as does the concern that any threats that the children might have faced would not merit removal from their families. What I find more strange is that the argument for removing the boys from the compound had been that they were being raised to "accept" the status quo. That really doesn't seem like it would be any different from a parent teaching their child any other practice that offends many others. Now we wait to see how quickly the state can get the kids back. I'm betting it isn't nearly as fast as it was to take them away.
