latest court ruling

Recommended Posts

Detroit, MI. (AP) - A seven-year old boy was at the center of a

County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who

should have custody of him.

The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially

awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation

requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible. The

boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than

his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her.

When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy

cried and said that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of

the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way

of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy

to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child

welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Detroit Lions, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
