KBA President Responds to Courier-Journal Paternity Articles

Robert C. Ewald, President, Kentucky Bar Association, writes in a letter to the editor:

Andrew Wolfson’s excellent article about the thorny questions of paternal rights (‘Ky cases pose question: What defines a father?’ March 18) well demonstrates the extraordinarily difficult issues our judges face when resolving disputes that have such an enormous effect on the litigants involved.

In a time when it seems to be accepted sport to condemn judges for their ‘activist’ decisions, perhaps the article will help those would-be critics understand how difficult some judicial determinations are and how decent and honorable are the men and women who must decide these complex cases.

Amen.
