Texas Supreme Court gives hints

What the Supreme Court asks for hints they have allowed the politics of the case to enter into their decision;

SAN ANGELO, Texas - The Salt Lake Tribune - "The Texas Supreme Court has asked attorneys representing nearly three dozen mothers from a polygamous sect to answer the state's bid to overturn an order returning their children.

The supreme court was already considering the narrow issue of whether to stay the ruling, which was issued a week ago by the Third Court of Appeals. It found a trial judge improperly kept some 450 FLDS children in state custody.

Now, the supreme court is giving attorneys for Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA) a deadline of Thursday at 9 a.m. to respond to the state's broad appeal of that ruling."

Ok, now this bothers me a little bit, since orginally it was just going to be a ruling on the court of appeals jurisdiction. Now it seems we're retrying the case, and on short notice. It could just be a courtesy since CPS raised all of these spurious issues, but the fact that they might read these assertions by CPS and responses by the representatives of the families bothers me a bit.
