Mr Bjorklund had avoided our ’process servers and did not appear” Danciu said - The adoption was granted on Sept 8 1992 and Bjorklund sued to have it overturned On Oct 16 Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Gary Vonhof ruled in Bjorklund’s favor and said he ‘Emily ’s walking and talking and laughing and nobody seems to care what she feels She ’s being treated as a piece of property ’ LEE ANN MANCINI spokeswoman for the Welshes had been denied his rights as a father The Welshes asked for another hearing on a legal technicality and Vonhof granted one last year Most of the evidence pre sented was the same the DCA said except this time Vonhof heard that in 1977 Bjorklund was convicted of raping a woman at gunpoint in Minnesota Bjorklund argued the conviction was 16 years old his debt had been paid — he-served five years of a 10-year sentence for sexual battery — and his life changed But Vonhof reversed his earlier decision and ruled that Bjorklund had abandoned Emily The DCA said Wednesday however that the rape conviction should not have been considered in deciding whether he w'as given adequate opportunity to stop the adoption The appellate ordered the lower court to void the adoption leaving the issue of custody unresolved Have brunch with Tropic our award winning magazine it’s all about South Florida personalities and places with some of the best writing and photography around Fine Designer Fashions For women Famous once a year summer give away 50mOFf&P SALE STAR TODAY One Week Only Due to Ike magnitude of tkts sale-we musl refrain from mentioning designer names f- wvitwv( RTALlAffi 'A P y’'r' V Ail Maior Credit Cards Accepted 1033 Kane Concourse (96th St) Bay Harbor Islands 866-1700 Open Monday thru Saturday 10-6 Near Bal Harbour Shops Additional parking in the rear Call For Directions LAURA ASHLEY SUMMER SAXE SAVE UP TO 50 on Women s and Children is Clothing Accessories and Home Furnishings SAVE 50 on Select Fabrics Omuuil price seieU men hainhw The talk Miami Ihe Galleria at hn Ictuderdaie the shop at bid NarhuM F-Y U orth Memte Palm Heath Shop at Home!
