I think that case went to the Queensland supreme court and they explicitly rejected the diagnosis of 'Munchausen's by proxy' (the excuse to remove the child), describing it as inherently unreliable, and in that jurisdiction at least it can no longer be used in medico-legal evidence. So, actually a win, all things considered. (Not that it should have ever happened in the first place.) The girl was returned to her mother. Been a while since I read up on that case. But I think there was a messy divorce between the parents that underlay the whole legal proceeding. Father did not agree with the way the child's health was being managed, or used it as a means to try to get custody, or something.
