Navajo Nation wants Mormon Church lawsuit in tribal court


SALT LAKE CITY – The Navajo Nation wants a lawsuit against the Mormon Church over the alleged sexual abuse of four Navajo children heard in tribal court.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( that the tribe's attorneys filed a motion Friday asking a federal judge in Salt Lake City to dismiss the suit until after it goes through tribal proceedings.

According to the motion, the attorneys argue that having the case go through federal court challenges the tribe's sovereignty.
