Forced to Wear Implant

An Idaho judge is threatening a deaf man with a contempt charge for refusing to make his deaf daughter use her cochlear implant. Shaun McLaughlin isn't making her wear the external portion of the implant when she's with him, so Orton Miller went to court to force him to do it. A judge signed an order requiring the girl to wear the external portion during waking hours because doctors told the mother this will improve her speech.
