Lawyer: adoptive parents can't see Cherokee girl

(Continued)

OKLAHOMA CITY —

Brown and the Capobiancos attended court hearings in Cherokee County District Court and Cherokee Nation tribal court more than a week ago, at which point a mediation agreement was filed. Details of that agreement were sealed.

A spokeswoman for the Capobiancos did not immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment Monday. Smith did not immediately respond to an email and her voicemail was full.

A Cherokee Nation spokeswoman, Amanda Clinton, said she could not comment on the motions because of the gag order.

The Cherokee Nation is holding a peaceful rally on Monday at 5:30 p.m. near the tribal complex to show support for the Brown family.
