Veronica's adoptive parents want High Court to hear case again

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV) -- The James Island parents who adopted a Native American child want the South Carolina Supreme Court to hear their case again.

The High Court ruled last month Veronica Capobianco could remain with her biological father in Oklahoma, in accordance with the Indian Child Welfare Act.

That final ruling was 3-2 in favor of the biological father, and a family spokeswoman says that leaves a window of hope open for the adoptive family.

"There's always hope that maybe one of the justices would have a change of heart," said family friend Jessica Munday.  "It was very obvious in their conclusion of the ruling that they struggled with that and that they were constrained by the Indian Child Welfare Act."

Veronica Capobianco is two-years-old. 

The family filed the request for the re-hearing on Friday of last week. No word on when they'll get an answer.
