California judge to decide if paralyzed SC mother can have visitation with kids

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge is expected to decide whether a

paralyzed woman who can't eat, speak or move is entitled to regular

parental visitation rights with her three young children.

Abbie Dorn of Myrtle Beach, S.C., was paralyzed by a series of

medical errors as she was giving birth to triplets in June 2006 in

a Los Angeles hospital.

Since then, the children's father has divorced her and is

raising them alone at his Los Angeles home. Dan Dorn says he

believes his ex-wife is unaware of her surroundings and that having

4-year-olds spend extensive time with their mother would only

traumatize them.

Superior Court Judge Frederick C. Shaller is expected to rule

Thursday after hearing closing arguments from attorneys for both

sides.
