Turtle Talk: Baby Veronica wins poll for Indian law case of 2013

The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl won the Turtle Talk poll for Indian law case of the year.

The case ranked at the top when matched up against 10 other cases. The decision drew national attention and led to the removal of a Cherokee Nation from her Cherokee family in Oklahoma.

Coming in second was Michigan v. Bay Mills Indian Community. The Supreme Court heard the case last week in a closely watched dispute over tribal sovereign immunity.
