FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2002

Jerry Haney resumed control of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, more than a year after he was ousted as the tribe's principal chief.

Ken Chambers, who was elected as Haney's replacement, handed over the keys to the tribal offices. Both agreed not to disturb tribal records. A member of Chambers' administration will stay in the building.

A federal judge said the Bureau of Indian Affairs can recognize Haney as chief.
