    Florida court rejects tribal jurisdiction in child custody dispute

    The Miccosukee Tribe lacks jurisdiction in a child custody dispute, a Florida appeals court ruled on Wednesday.
    The tribe’s court awarded custody of two children to Layla Billie, their Miccosukee mother. The non-Indian father, Kevin Stier, challenged the proceedings, which were largely conducted in the Miccosukee language.
