Thank you for speaking out against the unjust decision by the California Supreme Court in the case of William C., a father who had his children taken from him after his 18-month-old child, whom he was driving to the hospital, was killed in a car accident. The child was sitting on a relative's lap because a car seat was not readily available.
The Times supported the opening of L.A.'s dependency courts to the public. I strongly disagreed with the presiding judge's decision to take this radical step. Your decision to bring this case to light, however, is the kind of exposure that is sorely needed in Los Angeles' very troubled dependency system.
I urge you to continue to bring the dependency court to the public through such in-depth articles, and by creating a forum for those with knowledge of the system to discuss its strengths and weaknesses.
