NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A judge has ruled that a custody case involving a 10-year-old girl should be moved from Tennessee to Nebraska.

The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/1Cq7xvk) reports Judge Andy Jackson ruled last week to move the case out of Dickson County, Tennessee, since Sonya McCaul currently resides in Nebraska with her biological father.

A Middle Tennessee couple who raised the girl for eight years before she was returned to her birth father filed a petition seeking to terminate the parental rights of the father and adopt the girl.

The case has drawn national attention in part because of the circumstances that allowed McCaul to remain in the custody of the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services for close to nine years.

Jackson said Nebraska courts must agree to take the case before it is formally transferred.
