I have a short post today.
The New York Times is reporting today that the Oklahoma Supreme Court has issued an order stopping the proceedings in the case involving the little girl named Virginia. The stay was necessary because trial courts in two Oklahoma counties have issued conflicting orders regarding who should have custody of the girl.
The competing parties are the child’s adoptive parents, who are white, and her biological father, who is Native American. The child is Native American.
