An Oklahoma state court goes against the decision of the United States Supreme Court and decides the biological father of "Baby Veronica" can keep custody of the girl for now.
CNN's Randi Kaye reports.
Dusten Brown, the biological father, has always said the fight for his Cherokee daughter Veronica, 4, should take place in Oklahoma, because that is where she's been living the last year and a half or so.
When he was told he had to give his daughter back to her adoptive parents who live in South Carolina, he went to the Oklahoma court and they've now issued an emergency stay, defying the ruling by the higher court regarding Veronica's adoption.
Four other courts have ruled in favor of Veronica's adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco of South Carolina.
But Brown has been fighting hard to keep his daughter since the adoption was finalized this summer
He says, "I'm going to fight till I have no fight left in me and till they say you can't fight no more. This is my daughter. It's not a yoyo that I can just say, 'hey I borrowed it for 2 years and here it's back.'"
