Kansas Supreme Court Won’t Hear Schwab Case

KSAL StaffOctober 26, 2016

The Kansas Supreme Court won’t consider the case of a couple whose children were taken into state custody.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the court Friday declined to hear the case of Raymond and Amelia Schwab, who claimed their children were placed in state custody because of Raymond Schwab’s use of medical marijuana.

A Kansas appellate court said earlier the children were taken into state custody because of neglect and Schwab’s suspected drug use, not because of Schwab’s use of medical marijuana. The appellate court found that Raymond Schwab tested positive for methamphetamine and opioids during a court-ordered blood screening last year.

Raymond Schwab then appealed to the Kansas Supreme Court, where he intended to represent himself. The high court’s refusal to hear the case denies him that opportunity.
