Malawi Challenge to Madonna's Adoption

"A Malawi judge will rule next week on whether the High Court should hear a legal challenge to pop queen Madonna's interim adoption of a one-year-old boy from the southern African country, a lawyer on the case said. Malawi Judge Andrew Nyirenda said he wanted until November 20 to consider the case and whether an additional plaintiff could join the suit, said Justin Dzonzi, the lawyer representing the alliance of 67 activist groups which began the lawsuit. ``All the parties have been heard and the court has reserved its ruling because the Malawi Human Rights Commission also applied to be part of the case and the judge wants more time before he can make an order,'' Dzonzi said."Reuters, N.Y.
