Court on Monday.

A judge ruled that Vanessa James endangered her 6-year old
daughter Amber by taking her to the doctor too often. The judge said
she continually subjected the child to unnecessary medical
intervention, which placed the child at imminent risk for harm.
"My daughter didn't lie when she said she wanted to come home. She's
afraid," said James. "We have been accused of being good parents,
of being concerned parents that's why ACS took our child."
The judge ruled she doubted the credibility of the parents testimony, calling it self-serving.
"I can't imagine a judge being so cruel to let this child suffer," said James.
The James' want their daughter back and insist they're not giving up.
