Supreme Court Settles Baby Veronica Custody Dispute

Cherokee Girl Handed Over to Her Adoptive Parents

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has awarded a South Carolina couple custody of the 4-year-old Cherokee girl they adopted at birth, despite the fact that the biological father says the Indian Child Welfare Act mandates that the child be raised within the Cherokee Nation. The girl was put up for adoption by her birth mother before she was born, and Matt and Melanie Capobianco took custody of her shortly after her birth. However, Dusten Brown, the girl's biological father, has been fighting for years for custody because he wanted the girl to remain with the Native American tribe.
