“Supreme court turns away Oregon circumcision case”

An Oregon man who converted to Judaism wanted his son circumcised against his ex-wife’s wishes. In 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court declined to consider the case. The state Supreme Court ruled that given the boy’s age a lower court should ascertain the teen’s own wishes. Read about the case in an Oct. 6, 2008, article from The Oregonian.
