Indian inmate files opening brief in Supreme Court sovereignty case


February 6, 2020

An opening brief has been submitted on behalf of Jimcy McGirt, the Indian inmate whose U.S. Supreme Court case is poised to resolve the sovereign status of millions of acres in Oklahoma.

McGirt, a 71-year-old citizen of the Seminole Nation, has been sentenced by the state to serve 500 years in prison, as well as life without parole, in connection with the sexual assault of a child. But his legal team told the Supreme Court on Tuesday that Oklahoma can't prosecute him.
