David Froman on Scialabba v. Cuellar de Osorio

"David Froman proposes another approach to that used by the Supreme Court in Scialabba v. Cuellar de Osorio, a decision interpreting the Child Status Protection Act restrictively.  Mr. Froman offers a "single-petition" approach in place of the Court's "two-petition" approach.  He explains how his approach would meet the Justices objections to the beneficiaries' arguments, satisfy the statute, and yet help many more people.
