Utah Adoption Case
The Utah adoption case involving the child removed from VA may be headed to the US Supreme Court from the Utah Supreme Court. Since the Utah Supreme did not identify the names of the Utah adoptive parents, the case is identified by initials. The other part of the case is scheduled for trial in the Alexandria Federal District Court in early July 2012. Wyatt, the father, is suing several defendants for 10 million dollars. Wyatt is the unmarried father of the child taken to Utah. The case is important since Wyatt has a valid Order of Custody for the child. Furthermore, there is also a need to have a uniform adoption law just as we currently have the Parent Kidnapping Act that is designed to prevent forum shopping during custody hearings.
