Diagnosis of bone condition clears Dallas man of abuse charges

After a Texas man was accused of abusing his infant daughter, the injuries perceived as abuse were proven to be from a child's bone condition. Nine months after the initial report, the man was cleared of the allegations when doctors discovered the condition. The man was first suspected of abuse after doctors at a children's hospital determined the child had bone fractures that were "non-accidental injury." According to them, the pattern of fractures was indicative of child abuse, and police charged the man with second-degree felony injury to a child. His visitation rights were severely limited as a result.

Is the family dog a family member or just personal property?

Although many people in Texas and elsewhere refer to their four-legged friends as beloved family members, it is not surprising that most courts treat them as personal property. Couples with pets who are going through a divorce often have trouble agreeing upon who will get custody and thus have to rely upon the court to make a decision.

Texas parents may be interested in reading about a New York man in the middle of a custody battle who is suing a psychologist that recommended to the judge that his visitation time be reduced after he refused to take his 4-year-old son to McDonald's. The father had stated that his son had started throwing a temper tantrum, and he didn't want to reward bad behavior.
