Citizen Potawatomi Nation v. Dinwiddie Dept. of Social Services

In an unpublished ICWA case, the Virginia Court of Appeals found that an order denying transfer to tribal court is not a final order and therefore the Nation could not appeal the decision. Footnote 6 points out that the court believes an order to transfer to tribal court is a final order and therefore could be appealed.

Decision here.
