One To Be Published Family Law Case Today (KY)

The Kentucky Court of Appeals directed one family law opinion today to be published, Pursley v. Pursley, out of Marshall County. Digest to follow soon, but the commissioner recommended a change of custody to mom based apparently on allegations of sexual abuse. Then the commissioner who heard the case was elected to the newly created family court in that county. The court of appeals held that a hearing under CR53.06(2) should have been held following the commissioner’s recommendation in circuit court.
