Lead Litigation Attorney for Goldwater Institute Appointed to Arizona Supreme Court


Bolick currently represents some non-Indian parents who are suing to overturn the federal Indian Child Welfare Act which requires require state courts when placing Indian children for adoption to give preference to a member of the child’s extended family. That is followed by priority by other members of the child’s tribe and, ultimately, other Indian families. Bolick also named DCS as a defendant because it follows that policy.

Lawsuit documents here, as always.
