U.S. Supreme Court Decides Full Faith & Credit Case. On March 7, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court summarily reversed the Alabama Supreme Court's denial of full faith & credit (FF&C) to a Georgia court's judgment that let a biological mother's same-sex partner adopt 'their' 3 kids without simultaneously ending bio-Mom's parental rights. even though GA's adoption statute seemed to bar such an outcome. Well after the adoption became final in GA, the couple's non-marital relationship fell apart [the case predated the Obergefell same-sex marriage decision], and adoptive-Mom sued in AL for custody/visitation. In opposition, Bio- Mom claimed that GA's adoption judgment wasn't entitled to FF&C. The AL Supreme Ct. upheld that defense, holding that the GA court's violation of the GA statute was a jurisdictional failure that precluded FF&C. The U.S. Supreme Ct. reversed and held: (1) where a judgment shows on its face that it was made by a court of competent jurisdiction [under GA statutes, the GA court had jurisdiction to decide "all matters of adoption"], jurisdiction must be "presumed unless disproved," and (2) where a statute like GA's adoption statute doesn't expressly say its provisions are 'jurisdictional,' its requirements do not become 'jurisdictional' just because they are "mandatory" and are to be "strictly construed."
