The former Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court was embroiled in a custody feud in Providence Family Court. This fiasco involved prominent Rhode Island divorce lawyers as well as Keven Mckenna, a then candidate for RI Attorney General.
Former Chief Judge not harmful to his god child
An Associate Justice of the Providence Family Court ruled that the former chief judge of the RI Supreme court could continue seeing his 6 year old godchild because there was no evidence that the former chief judge was harmful to the minor child.
“Williams was pulled into the divorce case of the child’s parents when DosReis accused the former chief justice of being overly involved in the couple’s lives and the upbringing of their daughter. The issue led to an order in October, barring all unrelated males from visiting the child. The order was lifted March 2 when the divorce was granted.”Judge: RI ex-chief justice can see godchild – Boston.com
