On April 13, 2015, the attached complaint was filed by attorney Thomas Hunker pursuant to a federal lawsut on behalf of 4-year-old Chase Hironimus, alleging civil rights violations. Chase has been caught for many months in the middle of a legal dispute over a parental contract. The contract includes a clause placing responsbility with the father to have Chase circumcised and his mother trying to protect him from his father’s attempts to have him circumcised. In January 2015, ARC, Intact America, and Doctors Opposing Circumcision sent a joint letter to all Florida urologists warning them not to circumcise Chase.
