Romeike Decision Handed DownOn Tuesday a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit handed down its decision in the case of Romeike v. Holder. The panel ruled unanimously that the Romeikes’ desire to choose the education of their children did not constitute sufficient grounds for granting asylum.
ParentalRights.org President Michael Farris, who represents the Romeikes in this case, will appeal the decision by requesting an en banc hearing (one by the entire panel of judges) in the Sixth Circuit. Beyond that, Farris and the Romeikes are prepared to appeal to the United States Supreme Court if necessary.
We plan to present a more thorough treatment of this court decision and its impact on American parental rights in the days ahead. It will not be in next week’s newsletter, as we have exciting news to share regarding the Parental Rights Amendment. Yes, a time to take action is at hand!
That said, we wanted you to know of the decision that was handed down and that Mr. Farris and his team are appealing this decision.
Thank you for standing with us to defend the rights of all fit parents to direct the education, upbringing, and care of their children.
Director of Communications & Research
