I live in Washington State. I am a single father, a full time student, and I also work. I filed a civil suit in small claims court in another state against who I will refer to here as the Defendants. The Defendants received there summons on September 28th. Two days later on September 30th a telephone call was placed to CPS here in Washington where I live. On October 7th another call was placed. In each of these calls allegations of physical and sexual abuse were made against me. It is unnecessary to go into all that comes under the microscope when one is accused of such crimes because we all know, and so I will leave out those details, but I will say that my 12-year old son and I have undergone intense scrutiny not only by CPS, but also by the police investigators. I have gotten word today that CPS is going to close the case early next week and the allegations are going to be unfounded.
Now, I got a bit suspicious that it was the Defendants, so I checked my older sonís phone bill for evidence. (In this scenario please consider my older son as hostile and working with the Defendants). What I found was that there are clues in my older sonís telephone calls that suggest an increase communication between he and the Defendants immediately after the summons was served. This communication along with the timing of the calls and the receipt of the summons is cause for me to really believe it was in fact the Defendants. I believe obtaining copies of the Defendants telephone records will certainly reveal the caller to CPS and also show a conspiracy between the Defendants and my sonís mother. My question is this. Can I petition superior court and get an order to have the Defendants phone records released to me? Is there another way to pursue this matter?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
