(KSL News) A Layton couple, who were awarded only $2 for the forceful removal of their son by social workers, will receive some of their attorney fees.
U.S. District Judge Dale Kimball ordered the state to pay Connie and James Roska nearly $28,000 Tuesday to help cover their fees. This comes after their lawyer asked the state to cover his fees of $536,000.
The couple's 12-year-old son was removed from their home in 1999 without a court order because workers suspected his parents were making him sick to get attention. One week later he was returned to the home and was treated for a leaking gallbladder.
