USA Today article on Parental Alienation Syndrome

I picked up the link for this article from Grant Griffith's Kansas Family & Divorce Lawyer Blog. I wish I could say it was the latest tool in divorces.

I had a case in 1999 where the psychologist made this diagnosis of my client's wife. The judge felt certain that there was something wrong with my client and kept refusing visitation. When he finally did order the visitation that he promised, the wife took off with the child. We managed to get the judge to modify visitation and had the local prosecutor pursue her. My client got the child back and the mother may still be on probation.

Not a pretty case and for a long time we had no idea how it would turn out.
