Men Starting To Get Justice in Court

David Hasselhoff said Friday he had won legal custody of his two teenage daughters winning a decision over ex-wife Pamela Bach. "The judge said, `Enough is enough,"' Hasselhoff said outside Superior Court after a closed hearing. Hasselhoff was awarded primary physical custody and full legal custody, said Melvin Goldsman, his attorney.

The teens will mainly live with their father, who will have responsibility for making decisions about their health, education and welfare. Bach and her lawyer, Debra A. Opri, declined comment.

Editors note: Most states have a presumption that men should be awarded custody 50% of the time. It is time to advocate for the children. Shared 50/50 parenting. Three days with one parent, the next three with the other. Or seven days with one parent and seven with the other. This archaic concept of one parent being presumed superior over the other needs to end!

Yup, 50% of the diapers and the snotty noses.

Good for the Huff. I think his ex-wife and her attorney Debra Opri leaked that video of him, but he was still awarded custody. I saw the ex and Ms. Opri on Larry King and afterwards Hasselhoff's attorneys. To me, it seemed like day and night. Hoff's attorneys seemed very professional, yet Debra Opri appeared to me to be a media hound.

Deb Opri is a drama queen. Glad to see her lose a big one!

Men have been pushed around for too long.

And I am not even on a marriage strike.
