The Defendants are being sued in their individual capacity and their official capacity. They are as follows:

In this case the Plaintiff, Krissy Sanchez alleges that CPS and various defendants violated her 1st Amendment  4th Amendment and the 14th Amendment .  The Plaintiff, Krissy Sanchez states that she had a right to due process and was denied her due process and that she had a right to not have her home searched by CPS, City Councilman Chris Friedel, the Yellowstone County Sheriff Department and she maintains that she has a right to parent her children (s) without interference from the State of Montana.


The events arose on Sept 1, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. and are ongoing.

Billings CPS case worker Ceiria Rash removed her children who were in no eminent danger and failed to provide evidence of such eminent danger to her children.   The Billings CPS supervisor Christy Ellerbee once being provided evidence by the Plaintiff which consisted of photos a video and documentation that supports her allegations.


Plaintiff Krissy Sanchez was deprived of her children.   CPS broke into her home breaking down a door frame to gain access to her home with the assistants of the Yellowstone County Sheriff Department.


Sanchez goes on to say that this has caused her and her children terrific trauma, CPS forced her to have unnecessary exams by Dr.s and a disruption to her healing process from cancer and a pending divorce.  Sanchez goes on to state in her complaint that this “Feels like kidnapping or death of a child.”


The unconstitutional search and seizure and removal of her children needs to be addressed as the complaint states that all the defendants listed need to be held responsible for defying fundamental constitutional rights.


She is asking the Federal court to order an audit of all removals that were unconstitutional and immediately remedy and return the children not only hers but other parents children.


Sanchez is asking the court to award damages in the amount of 4 million dollars


Case worker Ceirra stated that there was no warrant needed to break in and enter in to her home.  Case worker Cierra Rash is accused of falsifying documents and omitting critical information so that she would be able to get an emergency custody by false misrepresentations to Law Enforcement and the District Court, kicking in the door searching Sanchez’s home all without a warrant.  


Finding that the children were not in any eminent danger CPS worker Cierra Rash seized the children.


CPS case worker Moyra Anthony refuses to let Sanchez talk to her kids verbally or have any contact with her children even when Moyra Anthony admits that children were NOT in Eminent danger.  


CPS worker Moyra Anthony failed to allow the parent, (Sanchez) to have contact with her  children which has been ongoing now for (4) months and refuses to set up a case plan or family plan for reunification with those children.


CPS Administrator Mauritia Johnson refuses to return calls or intervene in the removal

CPS  Director Sheila Hogan refused to intervene or return any phone calls to complainant.


Complainant, Sanchez has suffered 7 months of severe trauma based on removal of her children that was illegal and unconstitutional.


One of the things that the Complainant Sanchez has to follow are the local rules of procedure which are as follows:



  1. A complaint that is accompanied by a motion to proceed in forma pauperis is deemed logged until the motion is decided.

  2. When a motion to proceed in forma pauperis is granted, the complaint is deemed filed on the date the complaint was logged, except where an earlier filing date is provided by law.

  3. When a motion to proceed in forma pauperis is denied, the movant must be given a specified time of not less than 14 days to pay the full filing fee.

  4. A. in full payment is timely received, the complaint is deemed filed on the date the complaint was lodge, except where an earlier filing date is provided by law.

  5. B. If full payment is not timely received, the action is dismissed.

In this Complaint, the pre se non-prisoner, is asking the Federal District Court For The District Of Montana to hold an emergency hearing to expedite due to children involved.


The case number is CV-17-156-BLG-SPW-TJC and this case as of today's date is just “Logged” in Federal Court.
