Justice for Justina: Judge orders Connecticut girl to be returned to family
FOX ^ | Cristina Corbin and Perry Chiaramonte

Posted on 06/17/2014 5:14:19 PM PDT by Morgana

Justina Pelletier is coming home.

A Massachusetts judge ordered the 16-year-old Connecticut girl, who was taken from her family by child welfare advocates more than a year ago, to be returned to her mother and father effective Wednesday. The ruling caps a long-running medical custody dispute that began when two highly-respected Boston hospitals clashed over the girl's diagnosis. The case sparked national outrage, and led Lou and Linda Pelletier, of West Hartford, Conn., to wage a bitter legal battle.

The slime who made this poor girl and her family suffer should be horse whipped.

And then tarred and feathered, and then fired, and then their house turned into a public toilet and their family members shunned.

“Justice for Justina”

It will be “Justice” when EACH and EVERY ONE of the the worthless sacks of entrails who tore this girl from her family in the first place has been plunged into utter destitution by the ensuing Civil Suit this family should file.

The Pelletier family should fully intend to come out of this with full ownership of the hospital, all the worldly assets of every Administrator and bureaucrat who touched this case from Day One.

That is the ONLY non-violent way this garbage will ever be stopped. The other option is FAR less pretty, and — besides — that’s an awfully big ditch to dig, and 30cal ammo ain’t cheap, either.

Somebody needs to be sued all the way into destitution including every disgusting disgraceful “ family services” worker with their filthy fingerprints on this case.

I agree. The parents have had to practice self control during this nightmare. They may have even had to sign some nondisclosure and no-sue guarantees, but after the girl is home, and somewhat settled, they need to find some good laywers. A really good laywer would do this free for now, with intention of taking a percentage of the lawsuits to come. This is the ONLY way they will learn not to do this to some other family.

Yes, and the civil suit HAS to grab as much media airtime as is humanly possible; it has to be completely monstrous; it simply MUST strike abject FEAR deep into the hearts of every CPS worker and nanny-state hand-wringer in the whole country.

They seriously need to take the gross assets of the hospital, the State CPS, and every miserable puke who handled this case; multiply it times ten, and make that the number they’re seeking in damages.

Here’s the Rule Of Thumb:
If there’s a bureaucrat anywhere that doesn’t roll over and wet on themselves when they hear about the civil case, the damages being sought aren’t big enough.

Its unfortunate that they were in MA in the first place. This really should serve as notice to any conservative families still holed up in that workers paradise: get out while you still can.

I thought I read elsewhere that this is the same judge who ordered her “held” in the first place.

They've had excellent representation from Liberty Counsel for months now. I'm sure LC oversaw any signing, established adequate evidence and will make sure they are well represented going forward.

Prayers going up for Justina and her family. Thank the Lord that she is home. May she recover in the arms of a loving family and return to health soon. The entire situation was an all out assault by liberals to tear apart families at whatever cost. The cost here might have been death of a beautiful young girl. God bless Justina and family

The family is from Connecticut; the problems were with hospitals in MA. Let’s say I’d never set foot in MA again, except for the lawsuit I’d bring against the people/institutions that did this.

I have no doubt the state will send the parents a Bill for the whole time she was in state custody to include all medical treatment bills.

Just wait and see!

I suspect you’re right.

And then it will be if you don’t sue us the bill goes away...

And then no one is actually held accountable for all this.

Anything they signed won't be binding on Justina once she turns 18. Then she gets to blame all her troubles on Boston Children's and any other available deep pockets. May she prevail! May they be stripped of unnecessary assete!

The child welfare people should be prosecuted for child abuse. Naturally nothing will be done. This type of child trafficking and kidnapping by these control freaks goes on all the time. Mostly, it is a way to get control of other people’s lives.

I’m not one for lawsuits, but this family needs to sue Boston Children’s Hospital, the jerk resident from that hospital that started all of this, DCF and just about everybody else that was involved in this horror!

People need to be taught a lesson! The best way to do that is to hit them in their damned wallet!

“The judge granted the girl’s wish, after the Massachusetts DCF filed a motion agreeing that the teenager should be returned to her family. Alec Loftus, a spokesman for Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary John Polanowicz, confirmed to FoxNews.com last week that the agency was no longer planning to fight the case.”

So the judge only let her go home because DCF filed the motion agreeing to it. NOT because it was right.

They are from the film O Brother Where Art Thou, when a racist politician was run out of a town meeting on a rail, due to the popularity of a mixed-race singing group.

Thank God! Some good news for a change.

Prayers for Justina for a complete recovery of her health.

This is one of the most bizarre stories of government abuse of a citizen and her family, that I have ever heard (And this is without even getting into the Off-The-Charts medical malpractice).

Everyone needs to know Justina's story.

Thanks to Glenn Beck and Fox News personalities for keeping focus on her plight.

Indeed. No-sue and non-disclosure agreements are invalid if you sign under duress.

It behooths them to make a hasty departure form the fascistic state of Massachusetts before the leftist pigs kidnap their daughter again.

There is no excuses to forcefully take a girl from her family, that violates the very foundation of medical ethics on the grounds of forced treatment.
