This is a services agreement between DCFS and David and Mary Conrad, parents of Daniel Conrad; in the interests of Daniel Conrad: DOB 8-31-07.
The parents of Daniel did not cause harm to him, but rather the State of Utah did: by not properly training – and then licensing and certifying the inspector that passed their home off as being safe; when in fact it had egregious design errors that exposed the family to great danger; which caused harm to (could easily have killed) Baby Daniel by the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.
In order to be of true help and service to the family in meeting their needs, which is the stated goal and mission of DCFS; DCFS shall see to it that the State of Utah shall compensate the Conrad family for the damages and expenditures that the State of Utah did cause through their error.
Judge Lyman expressed confidence in Dr Armstrong – that he is acknowledged to be a competent, experienced physician; who is of good reputation in the community.
Dr Armstrong is happy with the care that Daniel’s parents have been giving him; and happy with Daniel’s strong rate of progression. Dr Armstrong feels that Daniel continues to be well cared for by conscientious and loving parents and is not at risk.
As far as Daniel’s well being is concerned, according to Dr Armstrong, additional services by DCFS are not necessary.
To prevent further unnecessary burdens upon the Conrad family and the upon the taxpayers and the court system – DCFS shall have its counsel prepare a motion to dismiss the case; based upon the fact that Dr Armstrong is happy with the care Daniel has been receiving; the strong rate of progression he has been making; given the absence of risk to Daniel at this time with the true cause of his health problem having been mitigated (State of Utah error induced carbon monoxide poisoning).
