Appeals court delays ruling in lawsuit over the deaths of Susan Cox Powell’s children
Posted 3:13 pm, September 7, 2018, by Ben Winslow, Updated at 04:06PM, September 7, 2018

SEATTLE — A federal appeals court has put off a ruling in a lawsuit over the deaths of Susan Cox Powell’s children.

In an order handed down on Friday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals indicated it would not rule in a lawsuit filed against Washington State’s child welfare services agency until that state’s Supreme Court ruled in similar case.

The ruling meant a delay in Chuck and Judy Cox’s efforts to revive their lawsuit against Washington’s child protective services agency over the deaths of their grandchildren, Braden and Charlie Powell.

“We are hoping for justice,” Cox family attorney Anne Bremner told FOX 13 on Friday.

The 9th Circuit Court has been considering the case since hearing arguments in December.

Susan Cox Powell’s family wins appeal in lawsuit over the deaths of her children
POSTED 3:52 PM, JANUARY 10, 2019, BY BEN WINSLOW, UPDATED AT 03:54PM, JANUARY 10, 2019
   
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals handed a victory to the family of missing West Valley City mom Susan Cox Powell, allowing their lawsuit over the deaths of her sons to go to trial.

In a ruling issued Thursday afternoon, the 9th Circuit Court reversed a lower court’s decision dismissing Judy and Chuck Cox’s civil lawsuit against Washington State Department of Social and Health Services over the 2012 deaths of Susan’s children, Charlie and Braden Powell.

“Material issues of fact exist regarding whether DSHS used reasonable care to avoid placing the boys in harm’s way,” wrote Judge Leslie Kobayashi.

Susan Cox Powell vanished in 2009 from her West Valley City home and has never been found. Josh Powell killed himself and their children at a home in Graham, Wash., in 2012 after taking a hatchet to his sons and then blowing up the home.

Josh Powell, who was a suspect in the disappearance and death of his wife, was under scrutiny by Utah and Washington state police. Charlie and Braden were in state protective custody while police investigated voyeurism accusations about Josh’s father, Steven Powell. (He ultimately was convicted, served prison time and died in July.)

After the boys’ deaths, the Cox family sued Washington’s child protective services system, arguing it had responsibility over the children and should have done more to ensure they were safe. The lawsuit made it to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which put it on hold while it awaited a lawsuit brought by four children in foster care who allege Washington failed to protect them from abuse in the system.

In their ruling, the 9th Circuit judges did give immunity to individual social workers connected to the Powell case. However, the court found there were issues with the children being allowed to visit Josh Powell at a home instead of a neutral location.

“The district court’s reliance on DSHS’s ‘continuing goal of reunification’ and ‘relative success of earlier family visits’ to hold that DSHS’s decision was reasonable as a matter of law ignores the extraordinary safety concerns Joshua presented,” Judge Kobayashi wrote.

The 9th Circuit Court also said information from police detectives who believed Josh was a danger and had concerns for the boys’ safety was also withheld from a lower court.

“DSHS also withheld the opinion of Joshua’s sister, Jennifer Graves, who stated Joshua was ‘unpredictable and volatile’ and expressed concerns for the boys’ well-being while in Joshua’s care. Other information withheld included concerned opinions from the boys’ counselor, and Joshua’s repeated violations of the Dependency Court’s orders,” Judge Kobayashi wrote.

A new court ruling could help Susan Cox Powell’s family in a lawsuit against Washington’s child welfare system

The decision by the 9th Circuit Court means the case will be sent back to a lower court where it could go to trial or end in a settlement. Speaking to FOX 13 on Thursday, Cox family attorney Anne Bremner said it was a good ruling.

“We are very pleased that we’re going to have a day in court for Charlie and Braden and for Chuck and Judy,” she said. “I think a trial is something we would look forward into in terms of achieving justice.”

Washington’s Department of Children, Youth, and Families did not immediately have a comment on the ruling when contacted by FOX 13.

Volunteers will reexamine West Desert mine in renewed search for Susan Cox Powell
POSTED 1:20 PM, JANUARY 4, 2019, BY FOX 13 NEWS, UPDATED AT 01:29PM, JANUARY 4, 2019
 
SALT LAKE CITY — A renewed search for Susan Cox Powell, a young West Valley City mom who disappeared in December 2009, will take place in an abandoned mine shaft in Utah’s West Desert over the next month.

“[The mine shaft] appears to not have been completely searched before,” said Utah Cold Case Coalition co-founder Karra Porter in an interview with The Salt Lake Tribune. “We think it’s a likely spot to find her.”

Experts with the unnamed company conducting the search believe it’s possible there are bone fragments, clothing or jewelry linked to Powell in the mine shaft. They will also search a few nearby shafts.

The site where the search is focused is within a few miles of the area where Susan’s husband, Josh Powell, said he took his two sons camping on the night of Susan’s disappearance. Josh Powell was the sole person of interest in his wife’s disappearance. He killed himself and his sons in February of 2012.

Porter told The Salt Lake Tribune that the Utah Cold Case Coalition received a tip last month from a man “who had a lot of information about West Desert mines” and the searches that took place there in 2010, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

The coalition is also co-hosting a volunteer-driven search for Susan Cox Powell scheduled for April 6. That search will focus on an area southwest of Dugway. More than 800 people have volunteered to participate, according to the event posting on Facebook.

No trace of Susan has ever been found in the nine years since she vanished.
