On August 23, the South Carolina Supreme Court denied a rehearing in the custody case of Baby Veronica.

Following a ruling in July, where the state’s highest court ruled in favor of the Indian Child Welfare Act affirming that Veronica would remain in Oklahoma with her biological father Dusten Brown. The two-year-old’s adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco, requested the rehearing that was turned down according to a press release.

The only step left for the Capobiancos is to appeal to the United States Supreme Court – they have 90 days to do so.
