Lisa Miller Given Another Month to Run

Lisa Miller has already been missing for at least three weeks with her daughter, having disappeared before being required to transfer custody to her former partner due to her consistent refusal to abide by court-ordered custody arrangements.

Today, a hearing was held in Vermont on whether Miller should be held in contempt of court for going missing with her daughter and for some reason the judge decided to give her another 30 days to show up:

A judge is giving a Virginia woman at the center of a lesbian custody dispute 30 days to appear in court with her 7-year-old child or face a contempt of court finding and possible arrest.

Vermont Family Court Judge William Cohen made that ruling Friday in the long-running custody dispute between two women who were once joined in a civil union.

Janet Jenkins, of Fair Haven, had asked Cohen to hold in contempt Lisa Miller, of Forest, Va., her former partner, for not turning over the child, Isabella, to her on Jan. 1, as she had been ordered.

The couple broke up in 2003, and Miller moved to Virginia, renounced homosexuality and became an evangelical Christian.

Miller’s lawyer says she doesn’t know where Miller and Isabella are.
