Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford: The Child Abductor

Andrew Feldstein
Giersch accused Rutherford of kidnapping the children and his lawyer called it an abduction. New York ordered for Kelly to return her children to their father in Monaco, based on the Hague Convention (which ensures that rights of custody and access under the law of one of the Member States are respected by other Member States by requiring a parent who internationally abducts their child in breach of their custody right to return the child to the parent with custody). A U.S. appeals court refused to hear Rutherford’s appeal.
