The removing of evidence seems particularly damning to the CAS. At that point, it looks like they are only concerned with saving face and not doing what is right by the children.

This 2014 case rang a bell. Wonder if there are any updates, 2 years later?

The article above is dated April 2014. It's the same case mcdreamy linked.

I'm curious too if CAS ever actually paid up.

Looks like the Society appealed in Oct 2014 and were crushed.

Interesting, the appellate court noted that the trial judge made factual findings based on virtually his own credibility assessments. I think there are some ongoing discussions on the forum now about credibility assessments?

wonder where they will get the money to pay? Would they be insured somehow or will they take it from the operating budget?

I could believe the waste of money. When my ex first left, she called CAS on me because I had forgotten to put the seat belt on my son in the back seat.

They investigated......huge hassle.
