Jason Patric wins appeal in unusual custody dispute

Last Aug. 28, we reported on a child custody case involving Jason Patric ("How will future generations define a parent?"), who sought to have his rights to his artificially conceived child protected several months ago. The actor lost in his first attempt to be awarded the right to be with his son. After months of court battles, he has won his appeal in a hard-fought custody dispute for his son.
