The rebuke of Texas child welfare authorities by the state's Supreme Court over its raid of the Yearning for Zion ranch was a late breaking even that led Thursday's newscast. CBS had Hari Sreenivasan file a full follow-up while Don Teague on NBC offered a brief stand-up. ABC mentioned the upshot in passing that the fundamentalist Mormon children will return home on Monday. Teague stated that "all of the children" will be released from foster care; Sreenivasan quoted the expectation of unidentified lawyers that Child Protective Services will "keep custody of a handful of girls they believe were younger than the legal age of 16 when they married or became pregnant."
