NJ court halts return of girl to mother in Turkey

Posted: Updated:

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Supreme Court has temporarily halted the return a child who has been living with her Turkish father in Clifton, to her mother in Turkey.

A state appellate court had upheld a lower court ruling that found the child had been illegally taken by her father in 2008 when she was 5, and ordered the girl returned to her mother.

The Record reports http://bit.ly/NgSaP6 that the high court issued the stay Friday as the child was being brought to JFK International Airport to board a flight to Turkey.

An attorney for the mother tells the newspaper that the state Supreme Court will consider next week whether to keep the stay in place while judges decide whether to hear the father's appeal of the lower court ruling.
