COA travels to Lafayette for arguments

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Indiana Court of Appeals travels to Lafayette April 20 to hear a case regarding the delayed return of children to their mother following the death of a sibling.

Judges Cale Bradford, Patricia Riley, and Margret Robb will hear In re T.A. and K.S.; L.F. v. Department of Child Services, No. 66A04-0807-JV-435, in which T.A. and K.S. were removed from their home by the Pulaski County Department of Child Services following the sudden death of their 14-year-old sibling. After an autopsy showed the teen's death was accidental and caused by a prescription drug error, the mother, L.F., and DCS agreed to a timeline to return T.A. and K.S. DCS didn't return the children by the agreed upon date of Aug. 3, 2007, so L.F. filed a motion to hold DCS in contempt. The trial court ordered the children returned on Aug. 9. DCS later filed a motion to dismiss the contempt motion, which the trial court granted.

L.F. filed a motion to correct error, which the trial court denied, leading to her appeal.

Arguments begin at 10 a.m. in Ivy Tech Hall on the campus of Ivy Tech, Lafayette.
