Pracht-Smith v. California Dep't of Soc. Serv., No. C060992

Trial court's denial of plaintiffs' petition to set aside their Ukrainian adoption of a Ukrainian girl is affirmed as Family Code section 9100 applies only to adoptions granted by a California state court, and as such, the trial court correctly found that section 9100 could not be used to  undo the Ukrainian adoption.
