Texas Medical Kidnapping Case Reaches Supreme Court Before Case is DismissedEarlier this month (December, 2019), Kaufman County Family Court Judge Tracy Gray signed a "dismissal agreement" between CPS and the Pardo family, after their case had reached the Texas Supreme Court. This was the culmination of a 5-month high-profile battle between the Pardo family and CPS, who removed four-year-old Drake Pardo due to allegations of "medical child abuse" because the parents sought a second opinion from a different doctor for the medical needs of their young son. The Pardo case received national attention, as the Texas Home School Coalition (THSC) and their attorney got involved in the case, bringing wide-spread public awareness. One of the Pardo's state representatives, State Senator Bob Hall, also got involved, and has written some very powerful criticisms of Texas CPS. The Pardo case was appealed by filing a petition for a writ of mandamus, which was denied by the appellate court, and was waiting to be heard by the Texas Supreme Court. But the family settled with CPS before the Supreme Court ruled. Senator Bob Hall lamented: “The bad news, if there is any, is that the agreement of CPS to end this case means that the Texas Supreme Court will not likely issue a final ruling in the case pending before them,” Hall said. “This means that CPS will continue to be able to use the same underhanded and misguided tactics against other families without restraint or direction from the state’s highest court.”

I have kinda thought that complaining to CPS for actual issues does very little good anymore i feel for this family. I have contacted and know people who have contact CPS and they say how short handed they are to deal with serious issues not enough proof this is a rediculous and this family should not have had to go through this.
