He was one of their twin boys born prematurely in August 2014. Both had serious medical problems. But finally he had been released from the hospital. The other son Hudson was still in the neonatal unit.
Later that evening the baby nurse discovered Archer was not breathing. At the hospital he was declared dead.
Long legal story made short, the parents were suspected of murder. The medical examiner ruled the death to be from shaken baby syndrome.
But had that even been accurate the shaking would have occurred after the parents had left for the evening. A bleeding in the brain is not uncommon with premature births.
Hudson was put in protective custody by the Administration for Children's Services (ACS).
And all this was reported by the media. My two syndicated blogs included. Here is my post from back then.
Since both parents were and still are professionals, the publicity could have damaged their reputations.
Now the parents have filed a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court.
They contend the autopsy was botched. ACS had pursued charges against them for six months. Then they were dismissed. The couple had never been charged with any actual crime.
Essentially they want the court to rule that ACS was wrong in how it handled the case. Here is the media coverage.
Meanwhile they have been through an ordeal for about two and a half years. The press reports that the city Law Department "will review the complaint."
