The parents of a woman who was severely disabled as a result of giving birth to triplets can help her sue to win the right to visit her children, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ruled.
Abbie Dorn, 34, who now lives with her parents in South Carolina, communicates largely by blinking. Her parents have the legal right to pursue a lawsuit on her behalf to try to force her ex-husband, who has custody of the triplets, to allow her to see them, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Her ex-husband and his lawyer have reportedly argued that she is too disabled to benefit from such visits and say they would be upsetting to the triplets and disruptive to his life.
