US: ICWA: Goldwater Case Thrown Out of Federal Court
Indian Country Today Media Network – March 21, 2017
On March 16, the federal District Court for the District of Arizona dismissed A.D v. Washburn, a class action suit brought by the Goldwater Institute challenging the constitutionality of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). Filed in 2015, the suit alleged that Native children who are the subject of state custody proceedings are given “separate and unequal treatment” based on their race.
