An update on the Boldt v. Boldt Oregon case

In Boldt v. Boldt, the Oregon case in which a recently converted Jewish father has been seeking the circumcision of his twelve-year-old son, the Oregon Supreme Court has reversed the trial court's and the court of appeals' decisions in favor of the father. The Oregon Supreme Court has remanded (returned) the case to the trial court for further proceedings. This is exactly what we wanted.

This is a huge win for genital integrity although it does not guarantee the final outcome.

More details later!
