Minneapolis, MN(AP) - A seven-year-old Bloomington, Minnesota boy was at
the center of a Hennipen 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
regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the 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 out 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 child welfare
officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Minnesota Golden
Gopher Mens Hockey Team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of
beating anyone.
