International custody case from Alabama heads to U.S. Supreme Court

An international child custody dispute that started in Alabama will be heard later this year by the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could affect when American courts have jurisdiction in such cases and when they don’t.

A federal judge in Alabama last year allowed a then-4-year-old girl to re­turn to Scotland with her mother, where they had lived before moving to Huntsville to be with her father. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals turned down the father’s appeal, say­ing the issue was no longer in its juris­diction because the girl already was living in Scotland, prompting him to ask the Supreme Court to review the case.
