Gag order issued in Baby Veronica case
TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA -The bitter custody battle over “Baby Veronica” continues between her adoptive parents and her biological father.
That battle ended up in two different courtrooms today.
Matt and Melanie Capobianco, Veronica’s adoptive parents, and Dusten Brown, her biological father, arrived at the Cherokee County Courthouse with his wife Robin, before 9 a.m. Friday for a custody hearing in district court.
It was the first time the two couples had been in the same room since the Supreme Court ruling in April.
There was no sign of little Veronica, who is now almost 4 years old even though there was a court order for her to appear.
The results of that hearing have not been made public after the judge issued a gag order preventing the parties from discussing the details.
Both couples left that hearing and went to another at the Cherokee Nation Tribal Court for another closed hearing.
KFOR was told Dusten Brown walked out of the tribal courtroom clutching two stickball sticks and raising them in the air.
