ABC 5 News - Civil Rights Lawsuit Targets State's Child Protection Laws

A Minnesota man, Dwight Mitchell who says his three children were once taken from him because of a single bottom spanking is alleging the state's child protection laws are unconstitutionally broad and vague, and are sometimes based only on allegations and social workers' discretion.

Family Preservation Foundation and the parental rights group he leads, "Stop Child Protection Services From Legally Kidnapping", filed a civil rights lawsuit in federal court against the state and county agencies charged with enforcing those laws.
