Deprivation of Custody

Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger (Cologne City Gazette), 01/19/1992

Memmingen - For the second time, a doctor in Memmingen tried in vain to deprive the parents of a child suffering from leukaemia of custody. The Memmingen district court rejected the doctor's request to deprive the parents of the seven-year-old girl of custody because they refused a bone marrow puncture or chemotherapy. Although the parents of three-year-old Katharina Scharpf from Markt Rettenbach had been deprived of custody by the Memmingen Local Court as recently as October 1991, this decision was repealed.
