Judge goes too far in child custody matter

Judge goes too far in child custody matter

From across the border comes a story out of Quebec (Canada for those rusty in their geography) where a judge overruled a father who sought to prevent his daughter from going on a school trip. According to the article, a divorced father had custody of his 12-year-old daughter. Dad cut off daughter's internet access after she chatted on a website he blocked. She then used a friend's computer to post "inappropriate pictures of herself" to this website. After Dad found out, he told the daughter she couldn't go on a three-day school trip. Not at all happy with the punishment, daughter moves in with Mom. What does Mom do? She says daughter can go on the trip. One problem--the school required the consent of both parents or a court order. Dad refused to give his consent, so Mom and daughter took their case to court.
