In the case of In re Stephanie Lee [Cause No. 11-0732] the court was tasked with determining whether trial courts have discretion to set aside a mediated settlement agreement on best interest grounds. The Texas Supreme Court held that section 153.0071 of the Family Code does not authorize a trial court to refuse entry of judgment on an otherwise bining mediated settlement agreement pursuant to a broad best interest inquiry. The court's rejection of a broad best interest inquiry after the parents signed a mediated settlement agreement in Lee makes it clear that trial courts may not subsitute their judgment for the parents decisions regarding how to raise their own children absent actual danger to their welfare., 2013
