Well done, counselor! You are obviously an attorney who’s kept up with this issue. I, on the other hand, am a mere retired paralegal, who’s been out of the legal game for several years now. Thus, like most “non-professionals,” I view these cases with a laymen’s attitude and approach. But please note that your exposition is appreciated.

So…are you saying that given the case law and the Supreme Court rulings on this matter, that the Jean family will lose their appeal — eventually?

Thanks for reading/responding!
