Immunity is full for DCF except when a minor is harmed or killed on their watch? Really? I thought there was some exposure for them, with use of federal court system? No?

No attorney has stated that DCF has full immunity. The above comments such as, "basically immune" and "courts allow for incredible flexibility" should not be interpreted as statements equivalent to DCF having absolute or full immunity.

Um, OK. I took the verbiage as pretty definitive. Apparently my error. I stand corrected.

Also, curious what happened to the folks whose home was tossed without a warrant? Just had to 'take it?' If you feel free to elaborate. The 'we're right, you are (probably) guilty' stance by DCF is new to me; had no idea of this alternate universe until recently...

Hi, please have a consultation with a local family law lawyer who handles Dependency cases. That is the best way for you to discuss these issues ensuring confidentiality rather than posting them here.
