WASHINGTON (AP) — Bye-bye, Elian? Well, not so fast.

Elian Gonzalez could be allowed to return to his native Cuba by Wednesday, but his Miami relatives are mounting a last-gasp effort to keep him on U.S. soil unless the Supreme Court rules otherwise.

On Monday, the relatives filed a formal appeal with the court, asking that Elian be required to remain in the United States until the high court has a chance to hear the case.

Pamela Falk, a professor at the City University of New York School of Law, said Monday the latest appeal was a long shot, and she predicted that Elian's U.S. stay was nearing an end.
