We have been covering the case of the Romeikes, devout Christians from Germany who wanted to homeschool their children because of what they perceived as the secularist agenda in German public schools. They fled and sought asylum in the U.S. after they faced mounting fines and the potential of imprisonment:

After losing in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, the Romeikes on October 10, 2013, filed a Petition for a Writ of Certiorari seeking to have the U.S. Supreme Court take the case.

According to the Supreme Court Docket for the case, on October 29 the government waived its right to respond, but on November 19 the Court asked the government to respond to the Petition.

This does not mean the Court will take the case. But it does signal an interest.

We’ll keep you updated.
