Lev Tahor court case pushed back to Dec. 23

The court case involving the fundamentalist Jewish Lev Tahor sect is being delayed two weeks, until Dec. 23.

Then, a judge will hear a request from Quebec authorities to have 14 children removed from their families and placed in foster care due to child neglect.

Last month, about 200 members of the group left their homes in Ste-Agathe-des-Monts for Chatham, Ont., just hours before the families were due to appear in a Quebec court on child neglect charges.

Yesterday, the Chatham-Kent Children's Aid Society appealed a decision rejecting their request for permission to have the children removed.
