Rights of deadbeat dads

Wendy McElroy writes:
Although I detest the present judicial system, it is difficult not to cheer on this lawsuit (.pdf) filed on February 23rd in the U.S. District Court of Connecticut. It could be a sign that the systematic abuse of the civil rights of 'deadbeat dads' is coming to an end. The civil rights suit is on behalf of Larry Mason and Modesto Rodriguez who were arrested in October 21st, 2006 during a 'deadbeat dad' sweep conducted by three State Marshalls (John Barbieri, Brian Hobart, and Jon Gallup) who are now among the Defendants.
Sounds like wishful thinking to me, but good luck to them.
