Doe v. Pruitt, Another (Fourth) Federal ICWA Case Filed (N.D. Okla)

Here is the complaint.

This case mirrors the ongoing Doe v. Jesson case (where Mille Lacs defeated the preliminary injunction, and we are currently waiting for a decision on summary judgment). Filed after we wrote the ICWA Legal Defense memo discussing the other three ongoing cases, this case involves a voluntary adoption, the Oklahoma state ICWA, and Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. The arguments involve right to privacy, and due process and equal protection concerns.

    ICWA is about the right of the CHILD, their need for family and culture in their sovereign status, despite what their birth parents decide.
