Court rejects ruling that excluded Oglala Lakota County residents from jury duty


A judicial order that for several years has excluded all Oglala Lakota County residents from serving on juries has been thrown out by the South Dakota Supreme Court.

The standing order was filed in 2009 by Judge Jeff Davis, who was then the presiding judge of the state’s Seventh Judicial Circuit. The order stood for six years until being tossed out last week by the Supreme Court.
