CASE ENTRY

Fernandez v. Bailey

American mother flees Panama with her infant sons without telling their Panamanian father. A federal court orders them returned. While custody proceedings are pending in Panama, the mother flees with them a second time. District court: In the two and a half years it took the father to locate them, they became so settled that an exception to the Hague Convention on child abduction applies; no need to return the boys. Eleventh Circuit: Return them.
