The home school advocates filed the lawsuit after an illegal subpoena was used in an attempt to question their children regarding child abuse allegations.
Todt says his agency did nothing wrong because it's up to the court to issue subpoenas NOT his department.
The practice, which has been in place for more than 20- years, has since stopped.
