In re Damien M., No. 01-92 (February 25, 2003)

A father appealed a Family Court order terminating his parental rights to his son in connection with an adoption petition brought by the child's natural mother and stepfather.  The Supreme Court affirmed the order terminating his parental rights, holding (1) that the Family Court justice did not err in questioning the father during the hearing, and that such questioning did not indicate judicial bias; (2) that having failed to raise the issue of bias before the Family Court, the father waived consideration of this issue on appeal; and (3) that the Family Court properly concluded, in light of the father's own admissions, that he had failed to contact or otherwise provide for his son over a period longer than six months, thus constituting prima-facie evidence of abandonment under the definition provided in G.L. 1956 § 15-7-7(a)(4).
