The judge awarded custody to the father, who had promised that his mother would stay home to take care of Maranda, while he worked and attended a local community college.

Although Cashen's ruling showed the continuing power of the idea that day care is inherently bad for children, and that mothers who rely on day care are neglectful, the public outcry about the case challenged these judgements.

Commentators rejected the message that Cashen appeared to be sending to women across the socioeconomic spectrum--that a mother's job was really in the home.
