The court – which found the court evaluator’s description of petitioner as “an idiosyncratic individual” to be an understatement – awarded custody of the child to respondent mother after concluding that to do so was in the child’s best interests. The court found that petitioner subjected respondent to a pattern of domination and control, including physical and psychological abuse, as corroborated by testimony by respondent’s other adult children. The court also found that, since respondent and her child left the home that they shared with the petitioner, the child’s aggressiveness had abated.
