A Missouri homeschooling family is suing a sheriff and another officer who forcibly entered their home without a warrant, tasered the father, pepper-sprayed the mother and put their children in the custody of social service workers.
A court already has ruled that the actions of Sheriff Darren White and Captain David Glidden of Nodaway County, Missouri, violated the U.S. Constitution, resulting in the dismissal of charges of child endangerment and resisting arrest against the couple, Jason and Laura Hagan, of New Hampton.
The lawsuit, which seeks compensatory damages, punitive damages and attorneys costs and fees, was brought on behalf of the couple by the Home School Legal Defense Association, the world’s leading advocate for homeschooling families.
