In re Adoptive Couple of Baby Girl ("Baby Veronica"): Okla. Supreme Court grants stay to keep girl with biological dad

From CBS News:

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has granted an emergency stay to keep a 3-year-old Cherokee girl with her biological father and plans to hear arguments from his lawyers and those of the girl's adoptive parents later Tuesday. 

The United States Supreme Court held in June that portions of the Indian Child Welfare Act that allowed Baby Veronica's biological father to gain custody were, in fact, inapplicable.  For the entire article, and discussion of the ongoing battle in Oklahoma's state courts, click here.

Veronica's birth mother was pregnant when she put the girl up for adoption, and a South Caroline couple, Matt and Melanie Capobianco, have been trying to adopt Veronica since she was born. Veronica's biological father, Dusten Brown, has been fighting the Capobiancos for custody ever since.

Thanks for sharing. I would really love to learn more about custody hearings in Batavia, OH. These things can be so messy. Just keep the best interest of the child in mind.
