July 2002Vol. 3, No. 6A Digest of Cases of the United States Supreme Court as to Juvenile and Family Law. Volume 2: 1988-2
The author presents 26 Supreme Court cases that affected juvenile justice and family law from 1988 to 2000, including such cases as:
- Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians v. Holyfield. The Supreme Court held that a tribal court had jurisdiction to decide on the finalization of the adoption of two children living 200 miles away from the reservation because both parents resided at that location.
- DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services. The Justices ruled that a child's due process rights were not violated by the failure of child protection authorities to prevent abuse by the father when the child was not in State custody.
- M.L.B. v. S.L.J. The high court held that States may not condition appeals from termination of parental rights orders on the ability of parents to pay record preparation fees.
