Baby Veronica’s Birth Mother Sues to Declare ICWA Provisions Unconstitutional

Here is the complaint in Maldonado v. Holder (D. S.C.):

Maldonado v. Holder Complaint

Wonder whether Baby Veronica’s birth mother has any Article III injury, since she’s given up parental rights to her daughter. I really don’t know.

There is a second plaintiff, described in the complaint as “a Caucasian woman who resides in Minnesota and who believes she may be 1/64th Cherokee,” who has chosen non-Indian parents to adopt her child.

Still waiting on the promised civil rights complaint on behalf of Baby Veronica.
