A former Maple Ridge, B.C., doctor has been fined $40,000 for posting nasty things about his former wife on Facebook during a protracted custody battle over their daughter. "The reality is that Dr. (Patrick Michael) Nesbitt has taken his battle with (Wendy) Neufeld over custody and access far outside the ordinary confines of the Family Court litigation," B.C. Supreme Court Justice R. Crawford said in a recent ruling. The former couple began custody hearings in 2006. Ms. Neufeld was given primary care, while Dr. Nesbittwasawardedsupervised access. Ms. Neufeld sued for defamation and breach of privacy after Dr. Nesbitt waged an online battle against her, making disparaging comments about her and some friends through avenues such as Facebook and YouTube.
