Protests continue in Tulsa for Baby Veronica

Posted: Updated:

It's pretty typical with children custody cases that the court documents are sealed, but perhaps this case is sealed even tighter because it is far from typical.

Monday morning News 2 stood witness to the beginning of what could be the end in the fight for baby Veronica. Matt Capobianco vowed to go to Oklahoma if law enforcement couldn't find his legal daughter, who he was given custody of by South Carolina family court after 19 months of fighting up to the nation's highest court and back.

Back-to-back court hearings Friday might be where the Capobiancos and Dusten Brown finally reached an agreement on who baby Veronica will live with and how it's going to happen.

Court records show a mediation agreement was entered Friday, though the records are sealed and the judge issued a gag order, asking all parties to refrain from commenting about the case.

All parties involved in the case, including the 4-year-old girl, were due in court Friday morning for a hearing at the Cherokee County Courthouse in Oklahoma.

The Capobiancos and Brown arrived ahead of a 9 a.m. hearing with no sign of Veronica.

According to Lori Alvino McGill, the attorney for Veronica's biological mother, the adoptive parents received notice Thursday that a hearing in the Cherokee Nation tribal court, originally scheduled for September, was pushed up to Friday at 11 a.m. to determine a "special guardianship" over Veronica.

Dusten Brown left Cherokee tribal court with Native American sticks in the air, protesters there in support of him cheered at the motion. Although, we don't know what that implies, what we do know is that the spokesperson for the Capobiancos said they are still in Oklahoma working on whatever that mediation agreement is about.

Saturday in downtown Tulsa protests continue in support of Veronica staying in Oklahoma.
