This ruling is an awesome show of the law and how it works. CPS is rarely overturned. In particular, to have the Third District Court of Appeals rule so specifically on the terms of what they can constitute “imminent danger” requiring the removal of a child, and also implementing the requirement to make every reasonable attempt to return the child to the home.
This is case law that I’m sure will be used throughout many cases in the future of CPS court. This is a huge advancement for all families who have been wrongly separated by CPS who have not followed the law like they are now being forced to. These children will surely find their way into history and law books to come and hopefully save the children of our future from suffering much the same fate.
From Jordan Merson, Jeffrey Epsteins’ victims lawyer:
There is nothing more heinous or outrageously offensive than when those who have money and power in our society use it to viciously sexually abuse and dehumanize those who are powerless, young, naive and easily influenced.
Jeffrey Epstein’s actions as set forth in the new criminal allegations against him are inexcusable and deplorable, for it is claimed that the billionaire financier used his money, power and influence to sexually abuse, sexually assault young girls.
If Jeffrey Epstein sexually abused you when you were under 18 years old, you may have a civil claim and be entitled to monetary compensation.
This is separate from the government’s criminal prosecution.
New York has changed its statute of limitations so your claims, no matter when they occurred, will be revived on August 14, 2019 for a limited window.
