About a month ago Jonn posted about the Terry Achane ongoing legal battle for the custody of his two year old daughter. Today was suppose to be the day that Father and daughter would be reunited. But this has been canceled due to a stay from the Utah Supreme Judge.
The Utah Supreme Court today put a temporary hold on a trial judge’s orders to return a little girl to her soldier father after she was given up for adoption without his consent two years ago.
The Salt Lake Tribune posted the reason for the stay in the following statement.
The high court said the provisional stay on the petition for emergency relief filed by the adoptive parents would give it “the time necessary to adjudicate the request for emergency relief,” but did not indicate how long that might take.
“It could be a day or two, it could be a week,” Wiser said.
This happened eleven days after the presiding Utah Judge refused to stay his judgement. I was wanting that this have a better outcome, but the sliver lining is that the process is not over. You can follow this story on Terry’s Facebook support page.
