FILE PHOTO 3SEP99 - U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno speaks in this September 3, 1999 file photo. The Justice Department is standing by a federal ruling that would send 6-year-old Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba to be with his father. Reno said the state court had no authority "to say who speaks for the boy in a federal immigration matter" and is prepared to litigate the matter in federal court, an official said.
