10/27/2011: “Shelbyville woman who sent boy back to Russia gets sued ,” The Tennessean

An article entitled “Shelbyville woman who sent boy back to Russia gets sued,” by Jennifer Brooks ran in today’s edition of the Gannett newspaper The Tennessean. An excerpt:

“A Shelbyville woman who put her adopted son on a one-way flight back to Russia is being sued for child support.

The agency that placed the 7-year-old Russian child with Torry Hansen filed suit, arguing that simply shipping the boy back to Moscow with a note pinned to his jacket does not terminate her parental rights.

Attorneys for both sides will meet at Bedford County Circuit Court this morning for a hearing that could stop the lawsuit in its tracks. If the court doesn’t grant the motion for dismissal, the case heads to trial Jan. 3.”
