An incredible interview today with Mat Staver, one of the attorneys helping represent the Pelletier family in their fight to get their daughter Justina back.

One point he made that hit particularly hard was this one:

Joe Markley said. “We see no reason for the Connecticut Department of Children and Families to involve itself in a case which has been so thoroughly examined to so little effect. This distressing story should end with Justina at home in the care of her parents, and we hope you will not delay that resolution.”…
