David Goldman Custody Battle Update: Sean Goldman To Return To US
In a long-awaited decision today, David Goldman's child custody battle may be over. Brazilian Chief Justice Gilmar Mendes ordered for Sean Goldman to be returned to his father David Goldman, which means Sean Goldman will leave Brazil and return to the United States. The custody battle was ongoing for a year now since the death of Sean's mother Bruna Bianchi. The decision has been pending for days. On December 16, it was announced by Brazilian Court that Sean Goldman would be returned to his father in less than 48 hours, but that decision was called off and it was ruled that the boy would stay in Brazil to give his own testimony. But, today that decision was overturned again.
Meanwhile, Sean Goldman's Brazilian family says they will demand Sean's return.
