U.S. Supreme Court not reviewing controversial adoption case

It has just come to our attention that the controversial case, In re A.A.T. from December (which produced a rare 4-3 split among the Justices of the Kansas Supreme Court) will not be taken up by the United States Supreme Court. In an order issued on April 20th, the U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari, without any comment. This was a case in which the Kansas Supreme Court refused to re-open a finalized adoption proceeding in order to give a chance for the unmarried father of the child to attempt to dispute the adoption.

Disclosure: In previously published commentary on this case, this blog has stated that we strongly agree with the majority’s decision.
