Home for the Holidays

The Courrant's Rick Green reported on December 7, 2008 That Marily Plank has been allowed to return to Michigan. She was detained for over a year in Connecticut by probate court in Greenwich.

She was greeted at the assisted living facility she is moving to by cheering family and friends, who had been fighting to bring Plank back for the last 18 months. Apparently brought to Connecticut by two daughters without the knowledge of the rest of the family, Plank found herself in probate court where the judge granted an involuntary conservatorship, essentially trapping the elderly Michigan resident. It took a year to rule on a request by Plank's daughter that she be allowed to return home.
