Judge rejects challenge to Oneida policing deal
A judge in Wisconsin said Oneida Nation police can be dispatched on emergency calls in the village of Hobart as part of a law enforcement agreement with Brown County.

The village claimed the agreement violated its right to home rule. But the judge said the state's 911 law gives counties the power to determine who can be dispatched in emergency situations.

The village has fought the Oneida Nation on land-into-trust, taxation, sovereignty and other issues. The village administrator is a former leader of an anti-Indian group.
