United States Third Circuit


Hamilton v. Bromley, 15-3111

Affirming the dismissal of the case of a father seeking declaratory and injunctive relief from an alleged conspiracy to deprive him of contact with his son, which the District Court dismissed because the father had custody of his son subject to pending state court proceedings and felt that this could render the case moot and dismissed. Although they erred in dismissing before resolving the question of mootness, the Court of Appeals found that the plaintiff's custody of their son did cause the case to become moot and affirmed the dismissal on that basis.
