Attorneys file motion to delay court-ordered Seneca-Cayuga election

 


MIAMI, Okla. – Attorneys representing chief Bill Fisher and a faction of the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe’s business and election committees have filed a request with the Court of Indian Offenses to delay their tribe’s court-ordered election.

Documents filed Tuesday afternoon with the court clerk’s office include a notice of intent to appeal and a motion seeking a stay of the court-ordered election for seats on the Seneca-Cayuga’s Business Committee and Grievance Committee.

On June 21, Judge Tom Walker invalidated an election conducted at the Seneca-Cayuga’s June 4 General Council meeting and ordered the tribe reconvene its citizens for another vote on or near July 23 with an independent monitor overseeing the process.
