Suit: NY dad criticized for denying son McDonald's
NEW YORK (AP) -- A New York father says a psychologist called him an inept parent because he refused to take his son to McDonald's and let the child go without dinner when he wouldn't eat elsewhere.
David E. Schorr filed a defamation suit Tuesday against psychologist Marilyn Schiller.
Schorr's suit says he offered to take his nearly 5-year-old son anywhere but McDonald's for their Oct. 30 dinner date. He says the irate boy chose no dinner instead.
Schorr says he then took the boy home early to his mother's apartment. Schorr and his estranged wife are undergoing a contentious divorce.
He says the episode prompted Schiller to tell a judge he was incapable of caring for his son. Schiller didn't immediately return a call Friday.
A lawyer for Schorr's wife declined to comment.
