A New York Family Court judge has issued an unusually blunt rebuke to two parents — one a former doctor and the other a lawyer — engaged in a “vitriolic and venomous” dispute over child custody and visitation.

“The parties fit the profile of that breed of litigant that the family court tends to encounter all too often; the career or habitual litigant,” wrote Judge Conrad D. Singer of Nassau County. “The moving documents in this current proceeding alone dispense such vitriolic and venomous allegations as to make it clear that the parties, the parents, while each claiming to be the true protector of the children’s best interests, simply appear to be using the Court as a vehicle to attack and demean one another.”
