Blogposts on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Abbott last week:
Charels Kotuby (ConflictofLaws.net): “Abbott v. Abbott: A Ne Exeat Right is a ‘Right of Custody’ Under the Hague Abduction Convention.”
Duncan Hollis (Opinio Juris): “The Supreme Court takes treaty interpretation seriously.”
Anna Christensen (SCOTUS Blog): “Court holds that ne exeat rights are enforceable “rights of custody” under the Hague Convention.”
UPDATE: February 2012
CNN has reported that the Abbott case, remanded after the Supreme Court’s ruling in 2010, was dismissed when Alex Abbott, the child at the center of the dispute, turned 16. See Bill Mears, Child at center of high court fight over custody gets closure (Feb. 12, 2012).
