Blacker complains in his brief that the judge refused to allow his counsel to cross-examine Ginsberg regarding her allowing him to drive her and the children to visit her relatives on Christmas Eve but does not present a coherent argument that the judge's action was an abuse of discretion or otherwise erroneous.
Blacker advances no argument regarding the significance of Ginsberg's delay in seeking the order (a delay that can be regarded as understandable in light of the fact that she relied on Blacker's assistance with their disabled son, maintaining the house and, to a lesser extent, helping their daughter).
