Harold Cassidy, considered one of the leading legal experts on surrogacy law in the United States and lead counsel for the surrogate mother in the 'Baby M' case, gave his commentary on The Matter of the Parentage of a Child by T.J.S. and A.L.S., in an article which appeared in the March 12, 2012 edition of The New Jersey Law Journal.
