Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court

Mission Statement

The judicial power of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe is vested in the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court system which shall provide quality, effective, and efficient judicial services to tribal members and non-members within the jurisdiction of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in accordance with Rosebud Sioux Tribal law: such judicial authority and jurisdiction of the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court shall extend to all cases arising under the Constitution, Ordinances, Regulations, Customs, and Traditions of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe and shall be exercised to the fullest extent of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe's inherent powers as a sovereign nation.


The purpose of the program is to administer a court system which addresses the Civil, Children, Appellate Court and backlog case needs of individuals residing on the Rosebud Reservation.


Criminal Court:

The criminal court shall exercise jurisdiction over all criminal offenses contained in Ttile Five and Title Six of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law and Order Code. The Rosebud Sioux Tribe exercises jurisdiction over Indian Country, as defined by tribal and federal law, in Todd, Mellete, Tripp, Gregory, and a part of Lyman Counties in South Dakota. The Tribe exercises criminal jurisdiction over all tribal members and members of other federally recognized tribes who reside or commit criminal offenses within its territorial jurisdiction.

The criminal court shall apply the Rules of Criminal Procedure as contained in Title Seven of the Law and Order Code. These rules set out the procedural steps that govern proceedings in criminal court. These rules shall be construed to provide simplicity in procedure, fairness in administration and to eliminate expense and delay. A person accused of a crime shall be entitled to certain safeguards guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe as well as federal law such as the Indian Civil Rights Act and the Tribal Law and Order Code.

The criminal court shall bear the cost of the attorneys for indigent defendants.


Civil Court:

The Rosebud Sioux Tribe exercises civil jurisdiction over all persons within its territorial boundaries. The civil court shall hear and decide all cases that are not criminal or juvenile in nature. The civil court shall hear and decide domestic relations matters, contract disputes, injunctions, tort claims (private or civil wrong caused by breach duty to another), probate matters, small claims (claims where damages are less than $2,000.00), landlord-tenant disputes, and all other matters not criminal in nature. Domestic relations cases include divorce, paternity, child custody, and child support enforcement, petitions for protection orders, guardianships, and similar matters. The court shall retain jurisdiction over domestic relation cases and these matters may be brought back to the court from time to time.

The civil court shall apply the Rules of Civil Procedure as contained in Title Four of the Law and Order Code. The Rules of Civil Procedure shall govern all proceedings in civil matters from the time an action is commenced until final judgement or order of the court.

The Rules of Civil Procedure shall be liberally constructed to ensure a just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of civil matters.


Children's Court:

The children's court shall exercise jurisdiction over all Indian children residing or found upon the Rosebud Indian Reservation in accordance with Title Three of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law and Order Code. This shall include jurisdiction over all cases wherein children are alleged to be abused or neglected, children in need of supervision, juvenile offenders, adoptions, and cases transferred back to the Rosebud Indian Reservation under the Indian Child Walfare Act.

The proceedings in children's court shall be governed by rules of practice and procedure as defined in Title Three of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law and Order Code.


Supreme Court:

The Supreme Court of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe shall take appeals from the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court when deemed meritorious under the Rules and Standards set by the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council by Ordinance. The authority of the Supreme Court shall include the power to review and overturn tribal legislative and executive actions for violations of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe constitution or the Federal Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968, as well as perform other appellate court functions. The Supreme Court Rules of Procedure shall govern all appeals to the Supreme Court.

Code of Ethics

A Code of Ethics is necessary to have in place in order to establish clearly defined behavior which is either expected of, or will not be tolerated from, those persons employed in furtherance of the unique and special responsibilities of a jurisdictions justice system.

As representatives of the judiciary, Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court personnel must conform their conduct, both on and off the job, to that which will promote public confidence in the justice system and maintain the integrity of the RST court as a fair and impartial forum for the administration of tribal law.
