Alaska Supreme Court Oral Arguments

Huffman v. StateA school must administer a PPD skin test for latent TB to each child who enrolls (1) in kindergarten, (2) in seventh grade, or (3) in the district for the first time. A child need not receive a skin test if an affidavit of a physician lawfully entitled to practice medicine or osteopathy in this state is provided. The Huffmans believe this regulation allows a naturopath to exempt a child from the TB test requirements, and the State disagrees. The Huffmans also argue that the regulation violates their freedom of religion and their rights to liberty and privacy.
