Jurors In Pine Ridge Case Should Come From Oglala Lakota County Says SD Supreme Court

 


Jurors from neighboring Fall River County should not hear a civil case arising out of an incident that occurred in Pine Ridge, the South Dakota Supreme Court decided when it unanimously ruled to reverse a lower court's standing order to not draw jurors who are tribal members living in Oglala Lakota County.

South Dakota Public Radio reports that a standing order in the Seventh Circuit Court to empanel Fall River County jurors in all cases from Oglala Lakota County (formerly Shannon County) amounted to a change of venue and was unconstitutional.
