Attorney: Jamie A. Moran

In an appeal from the juvenile court’s orders terminating parental rights, the Court of Appeal remanded for compliance with the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), because the juvenile court and Department of Family Services failed to comply with ICWA’s inquiry requirements. The Department failed to contact known relatives to inquire whether they knew of possible Indian ancestry.
