Update: Tribe's Court Prepares for Hearings
TEMOAK TRIBE - The court for the Te-Moak Tribe will begin to hear cases beginning Monday, May 17. The Court was shut down in March when the Bureau of Indian Affairs ran out of funds to pay for the salary of Judge Bill Kockenmeister. Further, it is being reported that at one time the BIA did have funding for the salary of the judge, but then reallocated those funds to another Indian tribe without informing the Te-Moak Tribe.
