IN THE MATTER OF THE CUSTODY OF FOUR MINOR CHILDREN; IN THE MATTER OF ANNETTE B. (M.); THELMA E. B., APPELLANT
CARL A. B., APPELLEE
No. 919 April Term, 1979, Appeal from the Order of the Court of Common Pleas, Civil Division-Law, of Blair County, Pennsylvania No. 60 March Term, 1976 and No. 407 October Term, 1976
Before: Price, Brosky and Montgomery, JJ. Price, J., files a Dissenting Statement.
Order of the lower court affirmed.
Price, J., files a Dissenting Statement.
I am not satisfied that the trial judge has given us a full opinion and feel disadvantaged by his failure to enunciate his findings on credibility. It is true that he finds credibility to favor appellee and the majority accepts that bald statement. I do not. For a proper review we must have detailed guidance form the trial judge. This record presents many disturbing points that to my cold review raise doubts.
While I could review the record and reach conclusions contrary to those of the trial judge and the majority of this panel, this should not be done absent a proper analysis by thetrial judge. In my opinion, absent a detailed analysis by the trial judge, it is impossible to effect a just result on this appeal.
I would remand for entry of a full opinion.
