Supreme Court Dockets Parenting Rights Case
UTICA, New York (September 28, 2012) – After working its way through the federal courts over the past four years, the case of John Parent v State of New York, et.al., was docketed by the Supreme Court under Case Number 12-350 and now awaits decision by the Justices after briefing deadlines set for October 22nd.
This precedent seeking case challenges mandatory classifications of custody and non-custody in all divorce and family court disputes. The plaintiff-petitioner John Parent is a fictitious name granted by a lower federal court to represent parents needlessly abused in our nation’s domestic relations courts and seeks to set a limit upon the states’ widespread intrusions of family privacy and joint child rearing arrangements. Issues presented include:
Have the states treaded too deeply upon the privacy rights of families in divorce and child rearing matters through the creation of a custodial institution and unequal doctrine of parenting?
Whether select treatment of pleadings and facts below foreclosed public interest rulings on important constitutional questions?
Can a state’s judicial process be abused to suppress First Amendment rights and foreclose access to a federal forum on judicial immunity, domestic exception and abstention policies?
Does the Constitution protect a conscientious civil rights attorney who publicly criticized his profession for its harm to American families in domestic relations litigation?
Observers have drawn a striking parallel between Chinese lawyers seeking asylum in this country and the American civil rights attorney behind the John Parent case in view of retributions upon the public criticisms of each nation’s domestic relations practices.
