The documents, filed Friday in Nowata County district court, show Matt and Melanie Capobianco racked up more than 2,000 Oklahoma attorney hours during their fight with Dusten Brown for Veronica, now 4.
Now, the South Carolina couple is looking to recoup the $1,028,796 in fees and $6,535.27 in costs they say Brown, a Cherokee, and the Cherokee Nation, who battled for Veronica to stay with Brown in Nowata, owe them.
The Cherokee Nation opted not to comment on the motion.
This is exactly what THE LAWYERS want - to create FEAR and to show us how powerful the billion dollar adoption industry really truly is... This is disgusting and extortion... Trace
The document I read showed that they are also suing Veronica. Baby Girl, a minor under 14 years old, is also listed as a defendant along with Dusten Brown and Cherokee Nation.ReplyDelete
The Capobiancos are unfathomably horrible. The cultural genocide occurring prior to SC's more recent decision was so clear. But this is just chillingly unbelievable.ReplyDelete
American society has been fed the brainwash that "adoptive parents" are always first and given top priority - that is the sales pitch and propaganda - no taking into consideration a child's life was just destroyed for her to be given to strangers.ReplyDelete
Too many people are still under that spell.
I have no sympathy for the Capobiancos - I see how stupid they are. This whole story will kick into a new level when Veronica begins to exhibit symptoms of grief, loss, despair. It WILL happen.
Lawyers are not known for their generosity, right? This batch are no different - getting rich off other people's misery.
