Today will be the first of two days of scheduled hearings in the ongoing tragedy of a single father in Tarrant County who has given up everything to keep his only child. Last August a jury of his peers reversed the ruling of a judge which originally caused the removal of his daughter from him for three years under “temporary” orders.
Since that time, this father’s attorneys have been seeking a two-hour hearing to ask the judge to require the grandparents, who were responsible for the lawsuit, to pay his legal fees. The judge has, on more than one occasion, refused to honor a set hearing on the basis that the grandparents were asking for a two-day hearing to argue that the results of the jury’s verdict should be essentially overturned.
If you live in the Ft. Worth area, you might want to attend the hearing today and/or tomorrow in the 231st District Court in Ft. Worth as a show of support for this dad in his struggle to be able to exercise his fundamental constitutional right to direct the care, control, and upbringing of his daughter. We will report on the hearing as things develop. Follow our Twitter feed, #JimLoose, or our Facebook page to remain informed and please pray for justice for this family.
