Court to Holder: Answer embattled homeschoolers


The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered the Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder to respond to a request for rehearing by a homeschooling family that claims it will face persecution if forced to return to Germany as the White House wants.

The order itself doesn’t guarantee that the petition for rehearing will be granted in the case involving the Romeike family, but it does give the family and its supporters reason to be optimistic.

James R. Mason, director of litigation for the Home School Legal Defense Association, which represents the family, said the order from the court was a step in the right direction.

He noted that most requests for a full panel of the appeals court are summarily denied without any further action.

“Here, the court has requested that the Justice Department respond, indicating that the court is taking our petition seriously,” he said.
