TULSA - Dusten Brown, the biological father of the Cherokee child caught in an adoption battle since she was 4 months old will be holding a news conference Thursday to address his next legal steps, according to the Cherokee Nation.
The Nowata, Okla. man, along with Cherokee Nation Assistant Attorney General Chrissi Nimmo, have scheduled the conference for 10 a.m. at the law office of Brown's Oklahoma attorney Clark Brewster.
Brown's daughter, known as "Baby Veronica" thanks to the Supreme Court naming convention "Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl", was handed over to her adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco of South Carolina, Sept. 23.

Brown has not spoken publicly since and has been notoriously absent from the media eye despite the case's prominence, last appearing on The Today Show and CNN in August.
