California judge says he can’t intervene in actress Kelly Rutherford’s global custody dispute.

A judge just awarded her ex-husband Daniel Giersch what seemed to be a victory in their ongoing custody battle, ruling that California does not have jurisdiction over the case. The Gossip Girl actress’ 8-year-old son, Hermes, and 6-year-old daughter, Helena, have been living with their father, Daniel Giersch, in Monaco for the past three years, and Rutherford has been fighting to bring them back to the States ever since.Kelly Rutherford attends City Harvest’s 21st Annual Gala – An Evening Of Practical Magic at Cipriani 42nd Street on April 30, 2015 in New York City.

Glass tells Us Weekly that a judge ruled that Rutherford no longer has the right to fight for custody of her son Hermes, 8, and daughter Helena, 6, in the state of California.
