SubGenius child custody setback: "Mark Frauenfelder:
Modemac says:

Rachel Bevilacqua posted her message to the newsgroup alt.slack that the custody case had been won on Saturday, January 6th. Boing Boing picked up the story and published it on Thursday, January 11th. So the word was spreading like wildfire (as stories published in Boing Boing often are) on Friday, January 12th -- at the exact time the case took a sudden, unexpected turn.

Even as Magdalen was receiving congratulations from the blogosphere, the opposition's lawyer filed an emergency last-minute appeal, and her son's father took further custody of her son against her wishes. The end result was that a 'stay order' was issued that effectly overruled the decision of Judge Adams, requiring yet another round in court. Magdalen was not reunited with her son, and the child is still in his father's custody until May 2007.

My apologies to Boing Boing's readers for the confusion; I hope this clears things up. As always, updates to this story can be found on my Web site.
