U.S. Supreme Court

Marten v. Thies, 446 U.S. 1320 (1980)

Marten v. Thies

No. A-972

Decided May 16, 1980

446 U.S. 1320

Syllabus

Application to stay California Court of Appeal's order declining to continue applicants' right to visit their prospective adoptive child, pending review by this Court, is denied. It appears unlikely that four Members of this Court would vote to grant plenary review, and the record amply supports the Court of Appeal's finding that further legal obstacles to the child's placement in another adoptive home would be to the child's detriment.
