(KSL News) A member of the FLDS church has dropped a suit against Texas child welfare officials now that her child is no longer a part of an ongoing child custody case.

Naomi Johnson was seeking financial damages from the state of Texas, claiming that her daughter should not have been taken in an April raid on the FLDS compound because the state had no evidence she was being abused.

She dropped the suit yesterday after Texas officials announced they would no longer seek custody of the toddler. The Deseret News reports that three other children also were dropped from the custody suit, bringing the number of cases still being investigated by the state to 37 out of the original 463.
