Court orders that the parents of German homeschooled teen Melissa Busekros be given back custody over her. Nothing that massive international attention, huge national embarrassment, loads of prayer, and tons of legal help can’t fix, eh? From the story
at World Net Daily:
A German appeals court has ordered legal custody of Melissa Busekros, the teenager who was taken from her home by a police squad and detained in a psychiatric hospital for being homeschooled, be returned to her family because she no longer is in danger.
Confirmation of the decision by the appellate level court in Bavaria came from the Home School Legal Defense Association, with 80,000 member families probably the world’s premiere homeschool advocacy organization. It has been helping Melissa’s parents, Hubert and Gudrun, with the legal battle for their daughter.
The HSLDA’s translation of the German appeals court ruling said custody of the 16-year-old was returned to the family, because while it was “appropriate” for the judge to do what he did at the time, when he ordered her taken into custody, new information now reveals the lack of danger.
