Mom sues judge over 3-year custody battle | New York Post
A Manhattan mom is fed up with all the delays in her three-year child-custody battle — so she’s suing the judge.
Public-relations exec Maggie Rhee Karn claims in her $10 million federal lawsuit that Manhattan Family Court Referee Marva Burnett has been stringing out the case for more than three years, costing the mom more than $200,000 in legal fees while allowing her ex-husband to control major decisions about their 9-year-old’s schooling and religion
.The Catholic mother’s case against her Jewish ex, Kenneth Karn, a financier, has taken more than 1,200 days — even though state law requires custody proceedings to be complete within 90 days.
