Texas authorities defend removal of 416 children
"I'm very pleased with the Texas response," said Kim Davey, bar spokeswoman. While the majority of the attorneys who have stepped forward have specialized training in family law, Davey said, others came from various unrelated disciplines. Those attorneys have received a quick tutorial to help them in their duties. "They understand what they need to know to serve as an attorney ad litem," Davey said.The attorneys are in a wait-and-watch mode until the outcome of a Thursday hearing, which Davey described as something that's going to be "phenomenal. ... Of course, each child constitutionally is entitled to have an attorney." She added that the unusual aspects of this case 416 children are in state custody represent a challenge for Texas lawyers, but one she thought they would be able to handle. The Texas Bar Association has 80,000 members.
