Florida the rules are different here Chapter CXXXII
A Florida Newspaper publicizes both the time and location of a controversial child custody case. Does the Miami Herald do this with every court hearing? No of course not. The newspaper must be hard up for news and needs something to do. Like inciting a riot among Cuban-Americans. Now that would be news and William Randolph Hearst would be so proud. Don't you just love Florida?

A court hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m. Wednesday in the custody dispute over a 4-year-old girl from Cuba. A state judge, at some point, will decide whether her father -- who lives in Cuba -- is fit to have custody.
Both the child and her mother entered the country legally two years ago. The girl's mother was found unfit to care for her, and the Cuban father has sought the child's return.
The Guardian-ad-Litem Office is seeking to close some proceedings in the case in which testimony may be solicited about the girl's mental health or visitation schedule with her father. The hearings were ordered open by a Miami appeals court following a petition by The Miami Herald.
The 4-year-old girl's case landed in court after the state Department of Children & Families found the psychologically troubled mother was unfit because of her abusive behavior toward the daughter. She was placed with a Cuban-American family in Coral Gables -- a family that state child welfare administrators say is more fit than the girl's Cuban father to raise her. The Miami Herald is not naming the child, her relatives or the caretakers.
The hearing is in Juvenile Court, 3300 NW 27th Ave.
