    Federal Court Ruling from the Melbourne Age, Australia (AP) - A seven year old boy was at the centre of a courtroom drama yesterday when he
    challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

    The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge
    initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody
    law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the
    degree possible.

    The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him
    more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When
    the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried
    out that they also beat him.

    After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning
    that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the
    judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who
    should have custody of him.

    After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child
    welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Queensland
    state of origin team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of
    beating anyone.
