Elian Gonzalez: The Next Generation

Nearly eight years after the battle over young Elian Gonzalez divided Miami, another Cuban child has become the center of a bitter custody fight. A trial is set to begin tomorrow in family court over whether the four-year-old girl's father can regain custody of his daughter or whether she should remain with the wealthy Cuban-American sports agent and his wife who want to adopt her.Cuban-American community leaders say this case probably won't spark the same tensions that Elian did. Both parents in this case are in Miami and have agreed to participate in the U.S. legal system -- and both say the girl should go with her father.
