supreme court denies anna mae he case

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to review the custody battle over Anna Mae He, and denied the Bakers' application to stop the Tennessee Supreme Court mandate ordering that Anna Mae He be reunited with her birth parents, Jack and Casey He: Supreme Court: Decision Stands for Anna Mae He. The ruling appears to be the end of this long and painful legal battle... though the Bakers are still fighting to the bitter end. In federal court papers filed June 12, 2007, the Bakers made another plea to overturn the Tennessee Supreme Court ruling. They're just not giving up. But if the federal court doesn't intervene, 8-year-old Anna Mae is expected to be permanently reunited with her biological family and two younger siblings sometime in late July. And lets face it—that's not going to be easy.
