First District Court Reviews Challenge to Adoption

The First District Court of Appeal ruled today in F.R. v. Adoption of Baby Boy Born November 2, 2010, a case in which the lower tribunal had dismissed the birth mother’s challenge to an adoption with prejudice on the grounds that she failed to show fraud, lacked any support for her allegations of duress, and that she lacked any allegation that her consent was involuntary.  In reversing, the First District found that the mother’s allegations were properly before the Court, and that there had been sufficient showing of fraud and misrepresentation by the mother, and that an evidentiary hearing was required.
