CASE ENTRY

Mann v. County of San Diego

Father of triplets strikes one on the back with a wooden spoon. San Diego County officials take custody of triplets and a fourth sibling. Kids are later returned, but not before county personnel perform intrusive medical exams without getting court or parental sign-off (and without notifying the parents). That’s unconstitutional, says Ninth Circuit, violating the rights of parents and children alike. The county is liable.
