Appellant Patricia Robertson appeals the district court’s dismissal of her claims against Appellees Jimmy Hecksel and the City of Gainesville. Corey Rice, Robertson’s son, was killed by Officer Hecksel during a traffic stop. As a result of his death, Robertson argues she suffered a deprivation of her constitutionallyprotected liberty interest in a continued relationship with her adult son. Whether a parent has such a right vis-à-vis her adult child is a question of first impression for this Court. We hold that the Fourteenth Amendment’s substantive due process protections do not extend to the relationship between a mother and her adult son and, therefore, affirm the district court’s dismissal of Robertson’s claims.Robertson v. Hecksel, No. 04-12357 (11th Cir. Aug. 16, 2005).
