PORTLAND — The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an Oregon dispute between a father who wants to circumcise his 13-year-old son against the wishes of the boy’s mother.
The case now goes back to an Oregon trial judge to determine whether the boy wants to undergo the procedure.
James Boldt converted to Judaism and says his son wants to be circumcised for religious reasons.
But his ex-wife, Lia Boldt, claims that her son is afraid to tell his father that he does not want to undergo the procedure.
