The Supreme Court has upheld a decision that granted a mother custody of her 9-year-old daughter, finalizing a high-profile dispute over custody rights.

After the couple separated in May 2010, their relationship worsened. The woman then absconded with the daughter without her husband's consent, the decision, dated Wednesday, states.

The husband proposed that his wife be allowed to see the daughter 100 days a year if he were awarded custody, while the wife had offered to let him see the child once a month. The woman sued to get court authorization for the divorce and custody of the child.
