Boston, MA —Today, Massachusetts Health and Human Services (HHS) filed a motion for review of reconsideration and dismissal in the case of Justina Pelletier. This action follows Liberty Counsel’s motion to return Justina home. Today’s motion indicates that HHS is in agreement to return custody of Justina to her parents.
Liberty Counsel anticipates a court order from Judge Johnson in the near future releasing Justina into the custody of her parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier.
“We are thrilled that Justina will soon be returning home,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “The family is thankful for everyone’s prayers and support. Since coming on this case in late-February, we have worked day and night and throughout the weekends to free Justina. The family looks forward to putting this 16-month nightmare behind them. It is hard to express the joy that the Pelletier family is experiencing as they look forward to being reunited as a family,” Staver concluded.
More details will be forthcoming when Justina is returned home.
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
