The whole thing's more than a little sad, actually.
Yes it is. I can remember when my wife and I attended meetings for a support group. There was one mother there that every time a member of her family was asked a question she would immediately answer for them. So I can fully understand why the judge ruled as he or she did. But I would tend to say there are more than likely things that have happened in the past and full story is not be presented.
