Court Rules Against Grandmother In Custody Case

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court has overturned a decision that favored a Florida woman as guardian for grandchildren in Michigan.

The court says Lori Scribner doesn't get an advantage under state law just because she's a relative. The court on Tuesday unanimously reversed an opinion from the appeals court and said a Muskegon County judge made the right call.

Scribner is a nurse who lives in St. Augustine, Fla. She's the paternal grandmother of three of four children who have been living with a foster family.

The children are age 12 and under and have been in foster care for five years. Foster parents want to adopt them.

The case is returning to the appeals court for work on other issues.
