More: tribal courts

The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is confirming the interim final rule published and effective on March 3, 2013, addressing the addition of two Indian tribes to the list of tribes with Courts of Indian Offenses (also known as CFR Courts), and deletion of five tribes from those under the jurisdiction of CFR Courts. The March 3, 2013, publication stated that the BIA would review comments on the interim final rule and either confirm the rule or initiate a proposed rulemaking. BIA did not receive any comments, and therefore confirms the rule without change.
