All charges were dropped against the mother, when it was discovered that the removal documents had never been approved by a judge, and was just rubber stamped with a judge's signature by probation officers.

Maryanne Godboldo battled against the illegal seizure of her daughter for nine month, and ten court appearances, and she won.
