SAN ANTONIO - In a crushing blow to the state's massive seizure of children from a polygamist sect's ranch, the Texas Supreme Court ruled Thursday that child welfare officials overstepped their authority and the children should go back to their parents.

The high court affirmed a decision by an appellate court last week, saying Child Protective Services failed to show an immediate danger to the more than 400 children swept up from the Yearning For Zion Ranch nearly two months ago.

Great news here. I'm a bit conflicted though, because I do think there were problems there that need to be adressed but the mass rounding up of children I think was quite excessive.

Perhaps this will be a lesson to CPS that it's authority has it's limits and cannot be used indiscriminately.
