Capobiancos hopeful Supreme Court will hear case; Decision expected next week

Posted: Updated:

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV) -- It's been one year since Veronica Capobianco was taken from her adoptive parents on James Island and returned to her biological father in Oklahoma. 

In July, the state Supreme Court ruled in favor of the father based on a federal law, the Indian Child Welfare Act, which protects Native American children from adoptions. 

Now the Capobiancos are still clinging to hope that the U.S. Supreme Court will hear their case. 

"Everything we've heard has been very positive that the court is very interested in this. All of the U.S. Supreme Court experts seem to be following this very closely and unfortunately Veronica's situation isn't the only one out there where this Indian Child Welfare Act is being what many consider is abuse, abusive," said Jessica Munday, the Capobianco family spokesperson. 

The Capobiancos expect to hear a decision from the Court in the next week.
