BIA Claims Drying Funds For Judge

TEMOAK TRIBE - The Bureau of Indian Affairs has told the Te-Moak Tribe that funding for the Tribal judge will run out. The Tribe has a federal contract with the BIA to provide for the operation of the Tribe's court, which includes hiring of court personnel, except for the judge. The judge is paid by BIA. Apparently, the funding is low and the BIA has informed the Tribe of its lack of funds.

UPDATE: The Tribe has cancelled court hearings for the month of April.
