A Remedy to Fit the Crime: A Call for the Recognition of the Unreasonable Rejection of a Parent by a Child as Tortious Conduct
AbstractIf we accept the fundamental premise that each parent has the obligation and the right to raise, know, enjoy, nurture, and encourage his or her children, then the insidious and often intentional act of subverting the relationship between one parent and a child by the other parent is reprehensible. Currently, due to the nature of the alienation and the complex relationships between the court and the parties, this act often has few consequences.
