AUSTIN, Texas (Deseret News)— "Attorneys for 38 FLDS women filed a new appeal Wednesday seeking to have more than 400 children returned to their mothers.
The petition alternatively asks the 3rd Court of Appeals to order the men to leave the YFZ Ranch and allow the children to return, or order mothers and their children to live elsewhere.
'The trial court could order the men — the alleged perpetrators of abuse — to vacate the ranch, or it could order the women to live elsewhere with the children during the pendency of the investigation,' says the petition filed by attorneys for Texas RioGrande Legal Aid."
Amended Petition for Writ of Mandamus.
