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.
