Lawsuit Alleges Violations Of ICWA, Due Process

Rally and news conference surrounding filing of lawsuit

Three Native mothers, joined by the Rosebud and Oglala Sioux Tribes, filed suit in South Dakota federal court in Rapid City Thursday for violations of the Indian Child Welfare Act. The plaintiffs claim that Pennington County routinely violates parents'  constitutional due process rights in abuse and neglect cases by not allowing evidence to be presented quickly after children are removed from their homes.
