Q: Are there any Lawyers interested in a case that just has to be presented? Two years researched. ProBono. Mid Missouri
This case would go to the Supreme Court. It is newsworthy. Civil rights violations. Statues ignored. Policies and procedures not followed. False documents presented to the court. This needs to be brought to the media's attention. Background in Family Law would be a plus. It is a very long twisted story and it leaves one with their jaw on the ground. Nothing about this case was done right and a Father and daughters bond is destroyed. Everything this child knew and loved feels foreign to her now. The Daddy that this child clung to and cried for on the night they removed her feels like a stranger to her now. They removed a straight A student that received awards for perfect attendance, from her sole caregiver. This father had a 25-year career as a top-notch paramedic, he fractured his back and was put on Percocet. He is 100% disabled, but he drove this child to school every day and was there at 3:00 to pick her up. She excelled in sports, and he helped coach. This was Feb. 11, 2016.
A: There are approximately 80 cases a year which are argued in the Supreme Court. About another 100 cases are resolved without argument.
There are about 7,000 to 8,000 cases a year filed with the Supreme Court. The likelihood of getting a case to the Supreme Court is about 1%.
I thought you should be aware of these statistics when you make a statement that a case will go to the Court. Being newsworthy is not a basis for the Court to grant review.
