Dad in Indian child case seeks Oklahoma adoption
Tuesday - 7/9/2013, 10:20am EDT
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- The biological father of an American Indian child who is the center of a custody suit that went to the U.S. Supreme Court has now filed to adopt the child in Oklahoma.
The Post and Courier of Charleston (http://bit.ly/171EAVp ) reports that Dusten Brown and other relatives filed the court papers in Oklahoma on Monday.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last month that South Carolina courts should decide who gets to adopt the 3-year-old named Veronica. South Carolina courts originally said the federal Indian Child Welfare Act favored her living with her father and Brown took custody in 2011.
Matt and Melanie Capobianco of James Island, S.C., who raised Veronica for the first 27 months of her life, appealed. Their attorney says the Oklahoma filing will further delay South Carolina proceedings.
