OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) releases a statement on Thursday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning a Denver Federal Appeals court decision that had upheld a state criminal prosecution on Indian land in eastern Oklahoma.
“Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association has engaged in this issue from the beginning concerned about the implications for our members,” said Michael Kelsey, OCA Executive Vice President. “While we are working to understand the scope of the ruling, OCA is committed to proactively working with the state, Oklahoma’s tribes and the federal government to find solutions that provide jurisdictional certainty for all Oklahomans.”
