Matter of Eli G – Case Brief Summary (New York)

In Matter of Eli G., 189 AD2d 764, 592 N.Y.S.2d 412 (2nd Dep't 1993), the Court upheld a derivative finding of neglect as to the two younger children where the evidence established that the mother's excessive corporal punishment of the older child was not an isolated incident but a pattern of discipline.
