Family Law Case Summary – Mammaro v. N.J. Div. of Child Protection

On behalf of Furr & Cohen, P.A. posted in News on Friday, May 6, 2016.

In a civil rights action following defendant?s temporary removal of plaintiff?s child from her custody after inaccurately she removed her child from approved housing, the district court?s refusal to grant qualified immunity is reversed where there was no clearly established law that temporarily removing a child after the parent takes the child from approved housing violates a parent?s substantive due process rights under the Fourteenth Amendment.
