9th Circuit Oral Argument in case where FVAP filed an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief. Watch the recording here. A.L.C. and E.R.S.C. - Sarodjiny Carlwig appeals the district court's order granting Andreas Carlwig's petition under the Hague Convention for the return of two children from the United States to Sweden. The issue on appeal is whether coerced relocation of one parent, as part of a pattern of abuse and isolation, can provide the children with a new habitual residence.
