BREAKING NEWS: TURNER v. ROGERS
June 21, 2011 § 3 Comments
The US Supreme Court yesterday ruled in Turner v. Rogers that it is a violation of the Due Process Clause of the US Constitution for the state to incarcerate a defendant for non-payment of child support when he was afforded neither benefit of counsel nor some alternative procedures, and he was not given adequate notice. I had previously posted about the case here.
I have only now gotten a copy of the opinion, and will post on it when I have a chance to read it.
Thanks to attorney Frances Stephenson.
