Custody: investigation report: access
CoA No. 120, September Term 2011. Reported. Opinion by Adkins, J. McDonald and Watts, JJ., concur and dissent. Filed Dec. 9, 2013. Decision of Court of Special Appeals reversed.
A trial court abused its discretion by applying its erroneous conception of a local court policy limiting litigants’ access to a court-ordered child custody investigation report, thereby applying a hard and fast rule to a matter that required the court to exercise its discretion.
