Cherokee Nation: federal court refuses to stop election

The Muskogee Phoenix reports: A federal court in Washington, D.C., denied a motion Wednesday by six Cherokee Freedmen to halt the June 23 Cherokee election.

The freedmen filed for the injunction five days after they were stripped of their Cherokee citizenship during a special election March 3.

A Cherokee Nation District Court later reinstated their citizenship and ruled they could vote in the June 23 tribal election.

U.S. District Judge Henry Kennedy denied the injunction based on that tribal court reinstatement. -- Feds won’t stop Cherokee election
