Saada v. Golan

(United States Second Circuit) – Affirmed in part, vacated in part, remanded. The District Court erred in granting a petition to have a child returned to his habitual home of Italy under the Hague Convention. Although it was affirmed that Italy was the child’s habitual residence if repatriating him would expose the child to a grave risk of harm the district court isn’t necessarily bound to return him.
