Supreme Court Denies Cert in R.P. v. LA County (Alexandria P. Case)

Order List here.

16-500 R. P., ET UX. V. LA CTY. DEPT. CHILDREN, ET AL. The motion of respondent The Minor, Alexandria P. for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted. The motion of respondent Father J.E. for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted. The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.

This means the Supreme Court will not be hearing the case.

There are still a few issues in the California courts being litigated, so we will keep an eye on it, but this should (hopefully) be the end of this case.

    I am happy for this child. These paid caregivers denied her permanency with her family for 3 additional years after the court first ordered unification. I am also concerned because this group has stated that their goal is to break the ICWA. I know they will select other Native children and exploit them as well in their quest. We need to band together and demand that the ICWA be honored.
