Full Faith and Credit

For anyone who has experienced the cooperation between states, here is a little known definition in our US Constitution relating to "Full Faith and Credit".

Also below is a video, who brought this issue to the Supreme Court... ie NY vs CT. (Unfortunately, representatives from CT didn't appear.

Would like to thank those that are taking their concerns to the higher courts. If one reads the "legaleze" of the higher courts decisions, there are usually two main themes:
  • The lower courts are not following the statutes they are bound to.. ie acting under the "color of law"; or
  • The higher courts state that they can not judge on the merits since the lower courts weren't doing their job.
Do suggest that one searches the Appeals and/or Supreme court decisions at this link in the hopes they will find similar decisions to their concerns>>

Definition of "Full Faith and Credit"

"FFAC" redirects here. FFAC may also refer to Final Fantasy VII:Advent Children.
The Full Faith and Credit Clause is the familiar name used to refer to Article IV, Section 1 of the United States Constitution, which addresses the duties that states within the United States have to respect the "public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state." According to the Supreme Court, there is a difference between the credit owed to laws (i.e. legislative measures and common law) as compared to the credit owed to judgments.[1] Judgments are generally entitled to greater respect than laws, in other states.[2] At present, it is widely agreed that this Clause of the Constitution has little impact on a court's choice of law decision,[3] although this Clause of the Constitution was once interpreted differently.[4]

I am Felicita Luna ( Luna vs Dobson ) In a CT. paternity proceeding I was denied a the right to be heard on the merits of my claim. I said that the Ct judgement should not receive Full Faith and Credit because I never had my day in court.
