ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan judge has called a time-out in a child custody dispute involving a sailor aboard a U.S. submarine.
Lenawee County Judge Margaret Noe released an order Sunday, delaying some matters until at least Oct. 22.
The judge cited a federal law that suspends court action when a member of the armed services is away. Noe says she didn't know Hindes was in the Pacific Ocean until June 16 when he was supposed to appear or have someone bring his 6-year-old daughter to court.
Hindes, his wife and daughter live near Seattle. The judge says ex-wife Angela Hindes of Ohio still is allowed parenting time. She'll consider that issue Monday.
Noe has been criticized for her handling of the case. She says facts have been sacrificed for "sensational stories."
