The baby at the center of an adoption case that went all the way to the Supreme Court is set to be adopted by a South Carolina couple.
Late Wednesday, the South Carolina State Supreme Court ruled in favor of Matt and Melanie Capobianco.
Justices cleared the way their adoption of baby Veronica will be finalized.
The controversial case went to the U.S. Supreme Court after Veronica's biological father appealed the pending adoption, citing the Indian Child Welfare Act.
Last month, justices ruled that act was not applicable in this case and the South Carolina court must reconsider it.
Veronica's biological father, Dusten Brown, filed a separate adoption petition in an Oklahoma court this week.
The Cherokee Nation released a statement soon after the South Carolina Supreme Court's runing. It says:
"We are outraged and saddened that the South Carolina Supreme Court would order the transfer of this child without a hearing to determine what is in her best interests, particularly in light of the fact that this very same court previously found “we cannot say that Baby Girl's best interests are not served by the grant of custody to Father, as Appellants have not presented evidence that Baby Girl would not be safe, loved, and cared for if raised by Father and his family. Dusten Brown is a fit, loving parent and Veronica is, as the court previously defined, “safe, loved, and cared for." That should be enough."
