A long and sad opinion here, but a few things of note:
-as usual, Jay Treaty arguments are brushed aside.
-the State’s assumption that a claim of tribal membership is vague doesn’t mean ICWA might apply. And families might involve many tribes, from geographically diverse areas.
-there is or was a dedicated ICWA court or docket in Los Angeles County.
-the foster parents were not interested in helping with reunification in the slightest.
