Parental Rights Case

Supreme Court to Hear Oral Argument in Parental Rights Case

The U. S. Supreme Court agreed to resolve the question of whether non-lawyer parents may represent their children in federal court. Oral argument is scheduled for February 27, 2007.

This case generated intense interest after the Cleveland Bar Association launched an investigation of these and other parents for the Unauthorized Practice of Law after the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit issued an adverse decision in their case.
