The child was asked to be removed because the child was suffering form extreme separation anxiety, then the care takers suggested a form of therapy.

Good evening,

As the previous attorney correctly noted, it is very rare for a court to issue a gag order. While television and movies may make it appear otherwise, and that these are issued routinely, the reality is that people are afforded the right to their opinions and free speech so gag orders are issued sparingly and with great reluctance.

To the extent false statements are being made to a third party or parties however, and damages have been incurred, that can form the basis of a defamation claim.

If you require any additional information or clarification, please REPLY WITHOUT RATING and I'm happy to help you further. Otherwise, kindly remember to click on the stars at the top of the page to leave me a positive rating as experts are only compensated for our time and efforts once you do so. Thank you.
