I can tell you that I have never seen a case against DCF be successful unless the child was abused in their care or died.

No. DCF is immune from suit for this kind of thing. The only thing you can sometimes sue them for is personal injuries due to negligence that happen while a child is in DCF custody. But in this case they got a report, they went to court, the court said they had probable cause - the fact that you eventually prevailed doesn't give you the right to turn around and sue them - they were doing their job.
