Motion Filed to Dismiss Case Against Pelletier Family
Attorneys for Justina Pelletier’s family say the Massachusetts Department of Health and Human Services filed a motion for “review of reconsideration and dismissal in the case of Justina Pelletier.”
The action follows a motion from the Pelletier family’s attorneys to return Justina home. They say the motion from HHS indicates that they are in agreement to return Justina home.
The 16-year-old West Hartford girl is currently at a facility in Thompson, Conn.
She was taken away from her parents’ custody in February 2013 after a complicated dispute over a medical diagnosis.
Massachusetts DCF has not yet responded to a request for comment.
