Ruling delayed for German homeschoolers seeking asylum in Tennessee

According to the Morristown Citizen Tribune, a German family seeking political asylum in America will have to wait a few more days, their attorney confirmed this afternoon. Mike Donnelly – staff attorney for the Homeschool Legal Defense Association – said the ruling was delayed because the government failed to provide a document that was required for the judge to make a decision in the case which has grabbed national attention. Uwe Romeike and his family moved to Morristown after they clashed with German authorities over the Romeikes' insistence on homeschooling their children. The Romeikes objected to the state-approved curriculum for religious reasons.
