STORY: "B.C. childeren spent years in limbo after shaken baby accusation: Court proceedings dragged on for 4 years," by reporter Kathy Tomlinson, CBC News, published on January 3, 2012.

GIST: "During their first weeks back home, the children clung to the parents. “They were sleeping in our room,” Zabeth said. “They could not be apart from us or there were tears." Although the shaken baby diagnosis was wrong, it took an unnecessarily long time to get it overturned and to bring the children home, she said. "It’s not acceptable, and you see the damage that’s done, waiting for process," Zabeth said. Paul compares the slow pace of the court case to driving slow motion during an emergency. “It feels like your children are at home and someone’s trying to break into the house and you get a phone call — to get home as quick as you can. And your car is stuck in first gear. You’re driving five miles an hour trying to get home. It’s like, ‘Come on. Let’s go. Let’s go!’ It’s frustrating sitting in court saying ‘Let’s get going.’” Zabeth says she and her husband were reluctant to complain in court, because the judge held so much power over their family. “Any frustration [over delays] can be twisted, and viewed that ‘Oh, there’s a temper there.’"
