PHILADELPHIA, MS (WDAM) - The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians faced off Monday in Tribal court.
Timothy Taylor, attorney for Choctaws opposed to the Bogue Homa Casino argued his clients constitutional rights have been denied.
Taylor said his clients filed a petition for "writ of mandamus" to compel the tribal election committee to certify a referendum.
However, Defense Attorney, Bryant Rogers said the Choctaws followed the tribe constitution to the letter.
After hearing both sides, Judge Jeffery Webb said he would take all the evidence under advisement and make a ruling in the next several weeks.
