TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2002

A federal judge is expected to rule this week on the disputed leadership of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma.

Principal Chief Ken Chambers was elected in 2001 but the Bureau of Indian Affairs won't recognize him or the tribal council. A group of tribal members who are descendants of African slaves were excluded from the vote.

Former chief Jerry Haney claims he is still the legitimate leader until his tenure is rightfully resolved.
