NEW YORK (AP) — When Olympic skier Bode Miller handed his infant son to the baby's mother in a New York courtroom this week, she was handed a victory — for now — in a case that alarmed women's-rights advocates.
Former Marine and firefighter Sara McKenna was pregnant when she moved to New York last winter from Miller's home state of California. She's said she wanted to enhance her future and her child's by going to Columbia University.
But a judge called her move "irresponsible" and "reprehensible."
Women's groups said the ruling violated pregnant women's basic rights.
It was recently reversed.
Miller's lawyers say he never wanted to bar McKenna from moving and is just pursuing involvement in his child's life.
The 9-month-old boy is with McKenna at least until a Dec. 9 hearing.
