Madonna appeals Malawi court ruling on adoption

LILONGWE (Reuters) - Popstar Madonna has appealed a court ruling preventing her from adopting a second child from Malawi, her lawyer said on Friday.

"I just filed the notice of appeal this afternoon on instructions from my client," Alan Chinula told Reuters.

A high court ruled earlier on Friday that Madonna would not be allowed to adopt a second child, a 4-year-old girl named Mercy James, from the country.
