This Day in Daily History

Protesters rally for student stripped of custody
rights

Oct. 25, 1994 — About 50 students and Ann Arbor residents
crowded outside the Hatcher Graduate Library on this day to protest
a Macomb County circuit court judge’s decision to give
custody of the child of LSA sophomore Jennifer Ireland to the
child’s father.

Ireland made national headlines for the court decision, which
was protested mainly by the National Women’s Rights
Organizing Coalition.

The judge cited Ireland’s use of day care to care for the
child as one of the reasons for his decision to grant custody to
Steven Smith, the father.
