The hearing was reportedly called when Rocco made it clear he wanted to stay in the U.K., court sources told the Daily News.
The Daily News' sources allege that Rocco's lawyer in Britain has been holding his client's passport for safekeeping, essentially keeping the teenager from returning to the U.S.
The Daily News reports that Rocco must return to New York before the start of school after the Christmas break.
"I'm directing the child to be returned to New York," the Daily News quotes Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan as saying. "If he wants to stay with his father, he must return to his mother."
Kaplan also reportedly ordered both parents not to discuss the legal proceedings with their son.
