On April 4 at 1:30pm, The Kentucky Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in Louisville in an expedited appeal, Boone v. Ballinger. The court's calendar describes the case:
TWO ADVANCED APPEALS ARISING FROM DIVORCE ACTION BETWEEN KELLY AND MELINDA. BOONE AND MELINDA CHALLENGE BY JUDGMENT FINDING KELLY TO BE A DE FACTO CUSTODIAN AND FATHER OF TWO CHILDREN BORN DURING THE MARRIAGE BASED ON A THEORY OF PATERNITY BY ESTOPPEL ALTHOUGH BOONE IS THEIR BIOLOGICAL FATHER. MELINDA ALSO CHALLENGES THE DIVISION OF HER 401K.
Thanks to Michael Stevens of the Kentucky Law Review for the heads up. This is one I'd love to hear; too bad there won't be a podcast. If anyone would like to share the arguments, I would be glad to post the summary. Hear Mike's plea to webcast here.
