Ruling due in Kennedy maternity ward scuffle
MOUNT KISCO -- A judge is due to rule on what evidence must be made available to a son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in connection with a maternity ward scuffle.
Douglas Kennedy is expected Thursday in Mount Kisco town court. He has pleaded not guilty to physical harassment and child endangerment.
The charges stem from Kennedy's Jan. 7 attempt to take his 2-day-old son from the maternity ward at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco. Nurses tried to stop him, citing hospital policy, and two claim he injured them.
Kennedy says he wanted the baby to get some fresh air.
At a hearing in June, he requested information from the hospital, including medical and personnel records. The hospital resisted and the judge said he would rule by Thursday.
