United States Third Circuit

Allen v. DeBello, 16-2644

Fathers of minor children in New Jersey challenged the 'best interests of the child' standard used by NJ courts to determine custody in a dispute between two fit parents as unconstitutional, but the court held that the judges they sued were not proper parties to the action and the court lacked subject-matter jurisdiction to hear the claim.
