What follows is the post as it originally appeared.ere’s one I haven’t heard before: A woman gets pregnant in California by a famous athlete she is casually dating, decides to go to college in New York—tuition paid by the G. Bill—and after she moves there, before the baby is born, gets blasted by a New York judge for “her appropriation of the child while in utero,” which the judge calls “irresponsible” and “reprehensible.” I understand that fathers have rights, and I’m all for that.
The court stated that she had engaged in a "reprehensible" act and "unjustifiable conduct", and custody of the baby was granted to Mr Miller.
Their antagonism is so deep that they cannot even agree on a name for the boy: he calls his son Nathaniel but she named him Samuel (Mr Miller's first name).
But the case isn’t over, and it’s the latest fascinating entry in a series of legal challenges by fathers to traditional assumptions about parental rights and child custody.
The old legal problem for single mothers was deadbeat dads.
It's a blood rush that has allowed him to ski on pure guts, ignoring personal safety and technical grace for balls-to-the-wall plummets down the toughest racecourses in Europe, Japan, and North America.
He's the same unleashed wild man who, over a 17-year span, became the most decorated male skier in U. history and one of the most electrifying athletes to watch anytime, anywhere.
A strange thing happened over the weekend of Saturday, November 16: Bode Miller’s wife, Morgan Beck Miller, posted a long and sizzling piece on her blog that she labeled “The Honest Truth.” What she wrote, complete with Facebook and Twitter grabs, was a blast against Sara Mc Kenna, one of Bode’s ex-girlfriends.
A child that Mc Kenna and Bode conceived together is currently the object of a custody battle between the Millers (who live in Southern California) and Mc Kenna (who lives in New York City).
Bode Miller is at a beach volleyball game, and he's pissed.
