Threatening to take children may be coercion - child protection workers to face jury

Canada Court Watch receives calls from parents who claim that they felt forced to sign consent agreement with CAS under threat that their children would be taken away from them. Some parents have actual recordings of such threats from CAS workers in Ontario.

In a recent court case in the United States a judge has ruled that parents can proceed with a lawsuit against child protection services for using such tactics. Child protection workers in Canada must also take note that they can likely be taken to court if they threaten parents with removal of children if documents are not signed. This is coercion.

Judge says threats to confiscate children may be coercion

Homeschool family's case against sheriff's office, social services advanced Posted: April 04, 2010

An Arizona homeschool family's constitutional lawsuit against authorities – including sheriff's deputies, social service workers and even an assistant attorney general – has been advanced by a judge who ruled that a threat to take the family's children into custody could have been perceived as coercion.

It was the second straight strike against authorities who went to the home of John and Tiffany Loudermilk in 2006. WND has previously reported on the case, including when a judge ruled social workers must respect the U.S. Constitution regarding privacy and parental rights.

The court decisions have focused on arguments by deputies and social workers, who contend they shouldn't be held liable for their actions.

Earlier, the court ruled that social workers, accompanied by Maricopa County deputy sheriffs, made unsupported threats to place a family's children in custody and arrest the parents if they were not allowed to make what ended up being an allegedly illegal search of the family's home.

U.S. District Judge Earl H. Carroll at that point ordered that a lawsuit by the family against the social workers and sheriff would be allowed to continue, because the social workers' concerns were based on "an anonymous tip that the … Loudermilk children were being neglected and that plaintiffs' home was uninhabitable."

However, the judge said that under federal law, an anonymous tip, "without more, does not constitute probable cause."

The Loudermilk's are members of the Home School Legal Defense Association, a Virginia-based organization leading their defense.

"Social workers and sheriff's deputies had come to the home … demanding entry based on a six-week-old anonymous tip that the newly constructed home was unsafe for children," the organization said.
