Child Custody Vs. Chicken Nuggets
- posted: Sep. 12, 2014
David Schorr, of NYC, is a former corporate attorney and father embroiled in an ugly case with his ex-wife over their four-year-old son. While spending time with his father, the boy demanded to go to McDonald’s for some chicken nuggets. Schorr told the boy that he was concerned that the child was eating too much “junk food,” and said that the four-year-old could choose to eat “anywhere but McDonald’s.” The child threw a temper tantrum, simply refused to eat and proceeded to “tattle” on his father upon returning to his mother’s care. The mother, Bari Yunis Schorr, then took the child to court-appointed psychologist Marilyn Schiller, who proceeded to tell the court that Schorr was “wholly unfit” to care for his own child because he refused to take the boy to McDonald’s.
According to the New York Daily News, Schorr is suing Dr. Schiller for defamation of character. The child custody case is ongoing as of this writing.
It is likely that the mother in this case was trying to create a “history of abuse” and show that the child’s relationship with his father is a negative one, as part of her efforts to win the custody case. “History of abuse” is one of the factors that Virginia judges consider when making decisions on child custody.
Regardless of what one may think of the actions of either parent in this situation, it is clear that this particular child custody case has become very contentious. Unfortunately, these cases often do, and while difficult for all concerned, perhaps no one suffers more than the child. Both parents should seek skilled counsel in child custody cases and put the needs of their children first.

Mr Thomas F. Harding is an Attorney that I admire and very knowledgeable, He started on my case in May of 2019 and still in progress and soon to be over, but when I first went to Mr Harding office I was so afraid to go forward with my divorce because my husband is a mean man and he told me that he wasn't going to let me go, nor was he going anywhere I thought my life was over until Mr Harding explain everything and I knew that he had my best interest at heart and his soft voice gave me reassurance that it will be alright and with his loving secretary Mrs Raquel Knight they work together and I was bless and I thank God for them and I have two new friends now and I will be dropping in to see them occasionally, God bless Mr Thomas F Harding for all that you do for others, A job well done!
