Chancellor Carol McCoy said this morning that her “confidence was shaken” after the Department of Children’s’ Services redacted information on children who died or nearly died under the agency’s supervision beyond her order. McCoy ordered that the state agency go back and restore information it removed that she did not specifically order to be redacted in dozens of files that have already been released to The Tennessean and other media organizations. If DCS fails to follow the court's order, McCoy said she will not hesitate to hold DCS officials in contempt of court.
