In this recent case that has been taking over the media, a young four-year-old girl was killed at the hands of her mother and her mother's boyfriend. After an emergency custody battle with the father and a number of other witnesses including the child, the father was denied rights and later the child was found unresponsive with blunt force trauma and malnutrition. In this project, we will conduct an amicus brief to show the effects of child services actions on father's rights and child witness.
