Lisa Miller, the “ex-lesbian” mom who has been waging a lengthy custody battle with her former partner, Janet Jenkins, over their daughter Isabella, “has ceased contact with her attorneys and disappeared with (Isabella),” according to Vermont Judge William Cohen in the Times-Argus. (Thanks, Right Wing Watch.)
In November, Judge Cohen granted sole custody of 7-year-old Isabella to Jenkins, her non-biological mother, because of Miller’s continued refusal to allow Isabella even to visit Jenkins. Jenkins, however, was willing to allow Miller to continue visitation. The judge felt that giving Jenkins custody was the only way to ensure Isabella would continue to have contact with both parents.
Judge Cohen recently issued a decision saying that he could not delay the order, partly because Miller has neither appeared in court nor spoken with her attorneys (from the conservative Liberty Counsel) for over a month.
My thoughts are with Isabella. I dearly hope that Miller is simply spending some personal time with her daughter before the upcoming change in their lives, and not going into long-term hiding or doing anything else that would be detrimental to Isabella’s well being.
We’ll know on Friday. Stay tuned.
