A court case involving the ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect Lev Tahor has been adjourned until April.
A temporary care hearing was expected to continue Friday, but was adjourned to allow sect lawyer Chrisopher Knowles time to collect medical information, Knowles tells CTV News he’s been waiting for medical records from a Montreal doctor.
In December, Chatham Children Services took two children into protective custody, but would later be ordered by a judge to return them to their parents.
The case is separate from another one involving the sect and 14 other children. A decision in that alleged child neglect case is expected to come down Monday in Chatham.
This case will go back before the court on April 1.
