On April 16, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl, more popularly known as the Baby Veronica case.
The controversy stems from a 2011 decision by the South Carolina Supreme Court concerning the parental rights of a 2-year-old child of both Caucasian and Native American descent–dubbed Baby Veronica.
According to the South Carolina court transcripts, in December 2008, Christina Maldonado, a white woman, and Dusten Brown, a member of the Cherokee Nation, became engaged.
