A fight is brewing in the case of two little girls switched at birth at the U-V-A medical center.
A judge has approved a two million dollar settlement for one of the girls.
But Paula Johnson-- the girl's biological mother-- says that's not enough and plans to appeal the ruling.
She also may sue for custody of Rebecca Chittum, despite an agreement that has allowed the two girls to remain with their original families.
