Most commenters here are Californians. In Atty.Andrew Fleischman’s amicus on page 6 in the footnotes he refers to a California case: Humphries v City of Los Angeles,554f.3d 1170, 1186 ( 9th Cir 2009). So California, along with 5 other States mentioned has been found to implicate a protected liberty interest. Just FYI .

The protected liberty interest in this case is the 14th amendment. I’ll use the California case: Both parents accused by lying teenage stepdaughter that they hurt her. Child services believes the liar and pull their other two young children out of school (without a warrant!) and put them in foster homes… but parents prove in court teenage stepdaughter is lying. All charges dismissed and the two young kids returned to them. HOWEVER, the parents were also put on a different California registry during all this. It’s called the Child Abuse Central Index, or just CACI. It’s 800,000 strong. Look it up ! Anyway, the parents could not get off the damn thing. Had to go all the way to the Ninth Circuit to get off it. Happened around 2008-2010.

Great Twitter comments if you read them.
