Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin sought to speak with advisers about repercussions with the Cherokee Nation as she considered intervening in a custody dispute involving a Cherokee girl, according to correspondence released to The Associated Press under an open records request.
A South Carolina judge on Thursday dismissed contempt of court charges filed against Dusten Brown, the biological father of the girl known as Baby Veronica who was caught up in a lengthy custody dispute.
A preschooler at the heart of a custody battle that reached the U.S. Supreme Court has been ordered to be placed with the adoptive parents who cared for her early in her life.
In a victory for adoptive parents, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a federal law protecting Native American families cannot not be used as "a trump card" to block the adoption of an Indian child that would otherwise take place under South Carolina state law.
The Supreme Court is trying to sort out a wrenching adoption case involving a American Indian child, a biological father who first renounced any interest in her, and adoptive parents who eventually were ordered to hand her over to the father.
Brown last spoke publicly on the issue in October, when he announced he was giving up all legal challenges over the custody of Veronica.
"I love her too much to continue to have her in the spotlight. It is not fair for her to be in front of media at all times," he said then.
