We just posted on this case here: http://dastardlydads.blogspot.com/2010/01/huh-dad-gets-full-custody-when.html
Mom flees the home with the 3-year-old son and "disappears," and everybody says they can't figure out why--though Mom and child have been sighted at a domestic violence shelter. (Hmm. Put two and two together. Could it be that they showed up at a domestic violence shelter...because they were exposed to domestic violence? What a thought!)
So naturally, with all this unsettled, the courts turn around and give FULL CUSTODY to Dad? Without Mom being present in court to present her side? When there's the distinct possibility that Dad is an abuser? This is exactly how the system is coming to function--as a Kangaroo Court that caterers to would-be abusers and criminals. Be very very afraid for mothers and children.
