-- A court has thrown out a
bid to void a federal law that challengers claim is racist because it
places the desires and rights of Native American tribes over the
constitutionally protected best interests of children.
a unanimous ruling Monday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals did not
address the contention of the Goldwater Institute, representing Arizona
couples adopting Native children, that the law is unfair and illegal.
the three-judge panel pointed out that all the adoptions had gone
through since the lawsuit was first filed in 2015. As such, they
concluded, none of the plaintiffs had been harmed and there was nothing
left on which the court could rule.
Monday's ruling drew a slap from attorney Timothy Sandefur.
Because Wake threw the case out on the grounds there was no basis for a
lawsuit, at least not yet, he never addressed the question of whether
the federal law amounts to illegal racism.

Ed. Note: This is far from over... Taking Native children from their tribes is still going on...
