Parents’ rights being edged out by grandparents’?

Attorney says parents’ rights being edged out by grandparents’ in wake of unusual ruling 

From the Dickinson Press: 

In a ruling that defied predictions made by family law attorneys, a Grand Forks judge has upheld his decision to allow a 16-year-old girl free rein to visit her grandparents at any time, over the objections of her parents.

“This case has created an enormous amount of stress,” Cory Bjerke said in a statement with his partner, Naomi Sterf, the children’s mother.

Bjerke and Sterf are being sued by Bjerke’s parents for court-ordered time with the grandchildren.
