High court to tackle baby Veronica adoption dispute

Editor's note: In an interview on AC360, Dr. Sanjay Gupta spoke with an attorney, Paul Clement, representing the adoptive parents.

A custody battle involving the "best interests" of a 3-year-old Cherokee girl will be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court, an issue spanning the rights of adoptive parents and the desire to preserve Native American families within tribes.

The justices announced Friday they will hear an appeal from Matt and Melanie Capobianco, who legally adopted little Veronica in 2009, shortly after the birth mother agreed to give up the child. Oral arguments in the case will likely be heard in April with a ruling by late June.

Tonight on AC360: Malala’s recovery after Taliban attack

Today Malala Yousafzai was released from a British hospital and will continue her recovery at a temporary home there. The Pakistani teen became a symbol of courage after she defied the Taliban and promoted education for girls.

In 2011, when asked why she risks her life, she told CNN’s Reza Sayah, "I shall raise my voice...I have rights. I have the right of education. I have the right to play. I have the right to sing. I have the right to talk. I have the right to go to market. I have the right to speak up."

For speaking out, the Taliban ambushed a van transporting Malala and her classmates home from school in October and tried to assassinate her. The attack was brutal, but didn’t prove fatal. She was taken to England to receive medical care and protection from the Islamic extremists who threatened to come after her again.

Letters to the President #1446: 'The days ahead'

Reporter's Note: The new unemployment figures remain pretty bad, so by comparison perhaps the president will find my daily letter pretty good.

Dear Mr. President,

Congratulations on your re-election! The electoral college has finally made it official, so if you had any lingering doubts about faithless electors or similar nonsense, you can put them to rest. You have a date with the Chief Justice next to the Capitol in a about two and a half weeks, and then it is off to the second term races as it were.

Which, honestly, is both good news and bad news. Good for you that you won, but bad considering all that remains on the agenda.

The latest unemployment numbers this morning, for example, are still nothing to brag about. I've looked at a lot of economic data, so I know that the economy truly is slowly recovering. I mean, of course, if it continues acting the way it has for the past couple of years. But the process is going so slowly that it is like watching the sun move across the sky. The movement is almost imperceptible.

And frankly, you and I both know it would not take much to make it all fall apart again. Trouble in Europe. A distant conflict. A financial scandal of sufficient size.

On top of which, look at all the projects you are taking on! Immigration reform, gun control, the next debt ceiling debate.

So I'll say congratulations but what I really mean is good luck. I suspect any president in your shoes would need it.

Regards,
Tom
