U.S. Attorneys vow to ‘enforce federal law in Indian Country’
Wednesday, June 29, 2022

United States Attorneys Christopher J. Wilson, Clinton J. Johnson, and Robert J. Troester issued a joint statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta on June 29, 2022.

Wilson serves as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma; Johnson for the Northern District; and Troester for the Western District.

Today’s decision does not diminish the United States’ trust responsibility to our tribal partners.

The United States Attorney’s Offices in the Eastern, Northern, and Western Districts of Oklahoma will continue to enforce federal law in Indian Country. We will also continue to coordinate and cooperate with our state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners as well as state and tribal prosecutors to promote public safety and provide justice to all Oklahomans in Indian Country.
