Custody dispute to be decided in Georgia, By Joe Johnson, Athens Banner-Herald (February 8, 2011). The Georgia Supreme Court has ruled that a GA Trial Court Judge erred in dismissing a GA father’s child custody case, after an Italian Court adjudicating the father’s petition under the 1980 Hague Convention on Child Abduction held that it had proper jurisdiction to decide the child’s custody. The child’s mother fled with the child to Italy after the child’s father was arrested for domestic violence, triggering a cross-border custody dispute.
