Mom can't sue State, CPS for murder of 9-year-old son by custodial father (Douglass Township, Michigan)

We've followed this case for a long time, and I'm so sorry to hear this outcome. The back story is a complete and total outrage. The short piece below hardly gives justice to the blatant incompetence and abuser daddy favoritism demonstrated by the authorities. One of those cases the clearly shows that daddies are NOT at a disadvantage in the family courts or anywhere else.

The killer dad was OLIVER BRAMAN. 


Court: Mom can't sue Michigan, Child Protective Services workers in son's death

DOUGLASS TOWNSHIP — A federal appeals court says a judge was wrong to allow a civil suit to proceed against state Child Protective Services workers and the state by the mother of a western Michigan boy killed by his father in a murder-suicide.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ruled Tuesday that state workers’ conduct wasn’t the “direct cause” of injuries that killed 9-year-old Nicholas Braman.

The appeals court reversed the decision of a federal district judge who’d refused to dismiss the agency and workers as defendants.

Nicholas died in 2007 when Oliver Braman filled a room in his home in Montcalm County’s Douglass Township with carbon monoxide. Oliver Braman and his wife also died.

 Days earlier, Oliver Braman skipped his sentencing for abusing two other sons.
