TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Cherokee Nation Attorney General Diane Hammons filed a response Sept. 14 to a motion recently filed by Freedmen asking for reconsideration of an Aug. 22 decision by the Cherokee Nation Supreme Court.

In her response, she wrote: “the Nation believes that a reopening of the case, reinstituting the stay previously entered by the District Court, and withdrawal of the Order of Aug. 22, to set the case for briefing on issues raised by the Court in that Order and setting the matter for oral argument is in the best interest of the Nation.”

The court’s decision in August removed citizenship rights to nearly 2,800 Freedmen. If the court were to reopen the case and reinstate the previous stay it would allow those individuals who were removed to be reinstated with rights of citizenship.
