Madonna's Set To Appeal Adoption Starting May 4

Madonna's appeal in her attempt to adopt a 3-year-old girl from Malawi will begin May 4.
The case will be heard by three Supreme Court of Appeal judges, Court official Joseph Chigona.

"It may take up to two weeks,"says Chigona. "Madonna is not required to be present [during the appeal]."

"As with all court cases involving infants, this one will be inchambers, not in an open court," he says.

Alan Chinula, Madonna's Malawian lawyer, says they are "confident" things will work in their favor with the appeal. (A judge rejected the singer's application to adopt Chifundo "Mercy" James earlier this month because she did not meet residency requirements.)

Says Chinula, "We believe the lower court judge errored by basing her judgment on an archaic law of over 50 years ago."
