    That is the only way to fight back with these people!

    In our case my husband and I went out of town, and
    left our then 14 1/2 year old son in the care of his
    adult sister. DCS received a report saying that he
    was left alone. They came to our home with no
    warrant or court order, searched the house and
    took pics, and took my son and put him in foster
    care. It is a long 2 hour story. But we refused the
    probation that they offered and demanded the
    Grand Jury. So, 4 months and $7,000 in legal fees
    later they dropped the charges.

    We then filed suit. They have drug this out as long
    as they possibly can. We were supposed to have
    a deposition last Nov, but they didn't show up. So
    we asked for and got a court ordered deposition.
    They appealed that. The appeal was overturned and
    we finally had one Sept 2. Kind of. She was ordered
    to bring the case files, but didn't. When our lawyer
    asked her questions her answer 80% of the time was
    "I don't remember". She not only didn't remember how
    old my son was, she didn't remember where the TOOK
    him after they kidnapped him.

    So we are going to have another one, and he told her
    to bring the files next time. Since this is court ordered
    I think she is in contempt of court by not bringing the
    files. I think if she doesn't bring them next time, she is
    going to jail. Nothing will make me happier!
