The Eighth Circuit cited and discussed Buck relatively positively, before distinguishing it, in a 2001 compulsory sterilization case.

Michelle Meyer

As I recall, it was Roe v. Wade.

Paul A. Lombardo

Buck was cited by the Supreme Court of Georgia in Deen v. Stevens, 287 Ga. 597
July 23, 2010.

Wow--that's a lot of answers very quickly. Paul is right that Deen, 698 S.E.2d 321 (Ga. 2010) cites Buck, but I'm not so sure that's as a valid proposition of law. The dissent uses it to show that there's discrimination against mentally disabled.

The case I was thinking about is the one Sam was thinking of -- Vaughn v. Ruoff, 253 F.3d 1124, 1129 (8th Cir., 2001).

And of course Michelle is right that Roe cites Buck also, though in an odd way.

Paul A. Lombardo

I agree with Al; the Deen cite is primarily critical of Buck.
