Supreme Court Lets FLDS Decision Stand

I’m a little late to this party—I just happened to be at a conference today and another function this evening with some of the lawyers involved—but the Texas Supreme Court denied the State’s mandamus petitions in the FLDS cases this afternoon.  The Supreme Court of Texas Blog discusses the per curiam decision in the lead case and Justice O’Neill’s concurring and dissenting opinion (joined by Justices Johnson and Willett) here.

5/30/08 UpdateTexas Lawyer has this follow-up story, which unfortunately fails to credit my friend Amy Warr, of Alexander, Dubose, Jones & Townsend, for the result she obtained on the mothers’ behalf.
