Panel Paves Way for Children to Have Mother as Guardian

, New York Law Journal


Liebmann said in an interview that Family Court judges have differed about the designation of a natural parent as a guardian.

He noted that the Second Department scheduled all five of the cases they decided on Feb. 5 for oral arguments on Nov. 14, 2013, for the apparent purpose of sending a statement to Family Court judges.

Bruno Joseph Bembi of Hempstead, who is not affiliated with the Hofstra Youth Advocacy Clinic, represented the petitioner families in other four cases.

Judge Eisman has changed her name to Janet Capetola since hearing the cases.
