As recently reported in the Austin American Statesman's Legal Blog, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that the Texas state child protection workers improperly relied on a newspaper ad to notify a Dallas mother about an upcoming trial to take away her four children. As noted by the Texas Supreme Court, 'parental rights are far more precious than any other right' and they cannot be terminated unless the courts and state workers exercise a high degree of diligence.
The Texas Supreme Court noted that its standarrd was not met when notice of a trial to take away a Texas women's children was posted in a newspaper, especially given the fact that the women was not that hard to find.
