The Batt Case
In a new twist on a Fourth Amendment case, a police officer forced his way into HSLDA members Tim and LuAnn Batt’s home without a warrant, ostensibly to investigate a vague anonymous tip alleging concerns about the care of LuAnn’s elderly father. To help prevent other families from experiencing similar situations in the future, HSLDA filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Batts against the officer for violating their Fourth Amendment Rights. As of 2016, both parties have submitted summary judgement motions.
