On December 11, 2013, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Lozano v. Alvarez. The question at issue is whether a federal district court considering a petition under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, for the return of an abducted child, may equitably toll the running of the one-year filing period when the abducting parent has concealed the whereabouts of the child from the left-behind parent.

To discuss the case, we have Margaret Ryznar, who is an Associate Professor of Law and Dean's Fellow at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
