Appeals Court Changes DCS Procedures
The Tennessee Department of Children's Services says case workers can no longer remove children from homes without a hearing in court. The move has received criticism from child advocates and juvenile judges, who say the safety of children is already being affected. An Appeals Court ruling says workers have to abide by a constitutional amendment that guarantees people the right against searches and seizures without a warrant. Before the court ruling, case workers and their supervisors could decide on their own whether to remove a child but had to petition a court to review their actions within 72 hours. The federal court found that practice was unconstitutional.
