S-15-0129 In re Interest of Tavian B.

Separate Juvenile Court for Lancaster County, Judge Reggie Ryder

Attorneys: Joy Schiffermiller (Appellant, Joseph B.) --- Lory Pasold (County Attorney's Office)

Civil: Denial to transfer to tribe

Proceedings below: The trial court denied the father's motion to transfer to the Ogala Sioux Tribe.

Issues: The trial court erred in (1) denying transfer to the tribe as there was no good cause for denial of the transfer; (2) denying the transfer when the state had just filed a motion to terminate parental rights which is a 'new proceeding' under ICWA; (3) failing to provide the father with due process.
