Hooper v. City of Tulsa, 21-CV-165 (04/13/2022)
A federal judge ruled that communities in eastern Oklahoma can still prosecute Native Americans for violating local law, even after the U.S. Supreme Court stripped the state's criminal jurisdiction in those places because its landmark McGirt decision does not weaken municipal ordinances. McGirt says nothing about repealing or overriding the Curtis Act, which municipalities fall under.
Therefore, the Town of Byng will continue to prosecute Native American persons who receive traffic tickets or violate city ordinances. If you have questions about municipal jurisdiction over Native American persons, you should contact your attorney.
All court dates are the third Friday of each month at 4:00p.m.
If you have any questions about court processes, please call the Court Clerk.
Please do not visit our building if you feel sick or are experiencing symptoms of the flu or of Covid-19. Please call the Court Clerk for a continuance.
