Baby Veronica Case: Peaceful Rally at Cherokee Nation

Dozens gathered near the Cherokee Nation tribal complex Monday evening at a peaceful rally in support of Baby Veronica and her biological father, Dusten Brown.

The rally began around 5:30 p.m., with supporters asked to dress in pink. Brown was expected to speak to the crowd.

Meanwhile, court records indicate that the adoptive parents in the "Baby Veronica" case were being allowed the opportunity to visit the 3-year-old girl.

With a gag order in place, information about what is said inside courtrooms is still unavailable. But court documents have release some information stating, among other things, that until recently Matt and Melanie Capobianco have been allowed to see Veronica.

According to the documents, this came after a motion was made last Friday in a Cherokee County courtroom to halt visitation until further hearings could be held. And it was Veronica's court-appointed attorney, Angel Smith, who put forward the motion.

Attorneys for the Capobianco's filed a motion objecting to Smith's request to halt visitation. Additionally, another objection was made after Smith put forward a motion to appoint a court-sanctioned guardian for Veronica, also known as a "Guardian Ad Litem."

KTUL has not been able to confirm when visitation began or how many times the Capobianco's have met with Veronica. Both adoptive parents have been in Oklahoma since they arrived in Tulsa back on Aug. 13 from South Carolina.

Previous reports stated that Smith was appointed by the Cherokee Nation to represent Veronica. Cherokee County documents confirm that she is also representing her during proceedings in Cherokee County.

In addition to the motions filed above on Friday, the judge presiding over the court proceedings entered an "order of recusal." This essentially removes herself from the case, but it is uncertain why she made the motion.
