For those of you who have been following the David/Sean Goldman case for the past dew years:

Brazil Court Awards David Goldman Custody of Son After 5 Year FightSean Goldman Was Taken to Brazil By His Mother in 2004By SARAH NETTER and KATIE ESCHERICH
June 16, 2009 —
New Jersey father David Goldman (http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=7790766&page=1) received a holiday gift from a Brazilian court today. After waiting more than five years, he will regain custody of his son Sean Goldman, who had been held in Brazil (http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=7848050&page=1) by his mother.
A court in Rio de Janeiro ruled 3-0 in a closed session that nine-year-old Sean should be handed over to his father on Friday, the Associated Press reported. David Goldman has been told to be in Brazil in 48 hours to pick up his son at a U.S. Embassy.
Sean has been living with his stepfather since the 2008 death of his mother Bruna Bianchi, who took her then-four-year-old son to her native Brazil on vacation in 2004 and never returned. She divorced Goldman while in Brazil and married Joao Paulo Lins e Silva, a Rio de Janeiro lawyer.

Congrats to Sean and David! The battle for custody is definitely worth it, I'm glad for such a good outcome!

Yes, I'd have to agree with him though.....until he's back on the plane and landed here.....there's still one more hurdle.

You're right, MB..........I just read that the family in Brazil has filed a writ of habeus corpus, hoping to get a stay on the ruling.  Plus, they say that the child has to be brought to the US consulate.....after all the fighting in court, I'm sure that the family will not be that willing to take him there.  What do you want to bet that law enforcement will have to get involved, if it comes to that......

Well looks like it's not over yet....

I know.....I heard.  David Goldman gets to Brazil and is told that the Brazilian family was granted a stay, because they're looking to have the court approve for Sean to testify.  And since the Brazilian Supreme court is the current venue, they are in recess and it's possible that they won't give a ruling until February.  What horse$hit........

That stinks!  And exactly what can a boy of 9 testify about what a child of 4 knew?  In all those years it would be so easy to modify a child's memory by telling them what happened to them - and none of it be true.

I was just gonna come post because of the blurp that's on the CNN site that didn't go into details.

If it isn't ONE delay, it will be another.

I was wondering about that, have been following his story.  Really hope he gets his son back without any problems...
