Capobianco's suing for $1 million

Capobiancos suing Baby Veronica's biological father Dusten Brown, Cherokee Nation for $1M in fees

 Posted: 11/05/2013

NOWATA COUNTY, Okla. - The adoptive parents of "Baby Veronica," who had been at the center of a four-year custody feud are suing the Cherokee Nation and the girl's biological father to the tune of $1 million, court documents show.
The documents, filed Friday in Nowata County district court, show Matt and Melanie Capobianco racked up more than 2,000 Oklahoma attorney hours during their fight with Dusten Brown for Veronica, now 4.
Now, the South Carolina couple is looking to recoup the $1,028,796 in fees and $6,535.27 in costs they say Brown, a Cherokee, and the Cherokee Nation, who battled for Veronica to stay with Brown in Nowata, owe them.
The lawsuit cites the 1998 passing of Oklahoma's Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, which states the court shall award "the prevailing party" reasonable expenses made during proceedings provided the award would be "clearly appropriate."
The Cherokee Nation opted not to comment on the motion.


This is exactly what THE LAWYERS want - to create FEAR and to show us how powerful the billion dollar adoption industry really truly is... This is disgusting and extortion... Trace

  1. The document I read showed that they are also suing Veronica. Baby Girl, a minor under 14 years old, is also listed as a defendant along with Dusten Brown and Cherokee Nation.

  2. The Capobiancos are unfathomably horrible. The cultural genocide occurring prior to SC's more recent decision was so clear. But this is just chillingly unbelievable.

  3. American society has been fed the brainwash that "adoptive parents" are always first and given top priority - that is the sales pitch and propaganda - no taking into consideration a child's life was just destroyed for her to be given to strangers.
    Too many people are still under that spell.
    I have no sympathy for the Capobiancos - I see how stupid they are. This whole story will kick into a new level when Veronica begins to exhibit symptoms of grief, loss, despair. It WILL happen.
    Lawyers are not known for their generosity, right? This batch are no different - getting rich off other people's misery.

Two Worlds - Lost children of the Indian Adoption Projects

If you thought that ethnic cleansing was something for the history books, think again. This work tells the stories of Native American Indian adoptees "The Lost Birds" who continue to suffer the effects of successive US and Canadian government policies on adoption; policies that were in force as recently as the 1970's. Many of the contributors still bear the scars of their separation from their ancestral roots. What becomes apparent to the reader is the reality of a racial memory that lives in the DNA of adoptees and calls to them from the past.
The editors have let the contributors tell their own stories of their childhood and search for their blood relatives, allowing the reader to gain a true impression of their personalities. What becomes apparent is that nothing is straightforward; re-assimilation brings its own cultural and emotional problems. Not all of the stories are harrowing or sad; there are a number of heart-warming successes, and not all placements amongst white families had negative consequences. But with whom should the ultimate decision of adoption reside? Government authorities or the Indian people themselves? Read Two Worlds and decide for yourself.

ADOPTION TRUTH

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Our Fault? (no)
