Parents Who Named Child “Adolf Hitler” Lose Custody of Children, Though Based on Non-Hitler-Related Matters

NBC Philadelphia has the story; the New Jersey appellate decision itself is here. This family first made the news in Fall 2008, when a bakery refused to write the child’s name on his birthday cake. The appellate court held that the parents shouldn’t regain custody of the children, because of various abuse; the Nazi sympathies get no mention. The court also holds that “evidence of prior domestic violence committed by defendant-father against his ex-wife and the two children of a prior marriage was admissible in this case to prove the risk of harm to these children.”

Thanks to Prof. Jared Williams for the pointer.
