“..the current legal rule, that parenting determinations are case-by-case decisions based upon the standard known as “the best interest of the child.” This standard is often nominally filtered through a laundry list of factors, ten or twelve or so, depending on the state, but here’s the truth: the statutes almost never prioritize these factors, and only a particularly clumsy judge will ever get reversed. Why is this version of Scylla a monster? Because, if the standard for custody decisions is that loose, it encourages damaging litigation since the result is so unpredictable.”
