Transcript for Gossip Girls' Star Kelly Rutherford's Custody Battle
For more, we're joined, now, by our legal analyst, dan abrams. Dan, I can tell you, I have not seen you outraged like this in quite some time. You're talking about two american kids, age 5 and 3. Effectively being shipped to france. They're there for the summer. But effectively being shipped to france to be there for his father. Why? Because he got kicked out of the country. Now, the mother, kelly rutherford, has to fly to france to see her kids because he got kicked out of this country. No allegation of wrongdoing on her part or his part as parents. Simply, I think this judge effectively looked at this case like a travel agent. Basically saying, well, you know, it would be easier for her to travel here rather than for him. He can't come to the united states. So -- we heard that point made in the piece. You think the judge thinks she can jump on a private plane and be there. That's not quite what the judge said. But there is a sense that, yes. She'll be able to make it there. She'll be able to work it out. And I don't think that's a fair way to look at this case. One of the things that was talked about in this case is how her job is now changing. "Gossip girl" is ending. She may have uncertainty in her life to travel. Judge disregarded it. If it was a man, might have been a different story. Does kelly rut rutherford app appeal? She'll appeal. We'll see how it goes. But I don't see how this judge came to this ruling, where americans are being shipped to france. Thank you, both. To another case.
