Greetings NAICJA Members:
Please find attached the amicus brief that NAICJA joined and which was filed in the Supreme Court regarding the case, Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl. Note: NAICJA added a bookmarks tab to the attached PDF document for your convenience should you choose to review the brief on your computer.
Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on April 16, 2013. Twenty-four amicus briefs were filed in support of the Brown family, calling for the Brown family—daughter, Veronica, and father, Dusten—to remain together and the Indian Child Welfare Act to remain intact.
For up-to-date information on the case, including a list of and links to the amicus briefs filed in support of the Brown family, please visit:
