In a California Supreme Court ruling yesterday, a judge has made it harder for a divorced, non-custodial parent to block their ex from moving away with the kids.

The Ninth Circuit court (which covers California and the west) was the second circuit court to find the Federal "partial-birth abortion" law unconstitutional earlier this week. Hours later, the circuit court for NY came to the same conclusion. The Ninth Circuit affirmed a lower judge's ruling, which sides with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
