CPS penalized by Texas judge for unlawfully taking man’s daughter

Posted on September 16, 2016 by Chris Kirker

Harris County District Court Judge John Schmude ordered Child Protective Services to pay the legal expenses of a wronged father. Schmude ruled the CPS unlawfully took the father’s daughter away from him. Furthermore, Schmude instructed the involved CPS personnel to read the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights in the Texas Constitution.

According to the father’s legal counsel: “I clearly saw the irregularities of the illegal removal of the child from my client’s home, without a court order. I immediately filed a sanctions motion to prevent CPS from being able to dismiss their case to avoid being held accountable for their gross violations of the Constitution.” In addition, the judge ruled that the allegations and contentions of the CPS had no factual support. He issued a disciplinary action to the agency under procedural and other legal rules governing court proceedings.
