Oneida Tribal Judicial System / Appeals Commission
The Oneida Appeals Commission/Oneida Tribal Judicial System was dissolved effective March 1, 2015. The following section of the current Judiciary Law (Oneida Code of Laws, Chapter 801), pertains to decisions rendered from that entity:
801.2-6. Case law precedent that has been established through a prior decision of the Oneida Appeals Commission/Oneida Tribal Judicial System shall remain precedent unless overturned or otherwise modified by a decision of the Judiciary, or by a law adopted by the Oneida Business Committee or Oneida General Tribal Council. The principles of Yonikúhlihsa ahtú (a decision is made) shall apply to all matters before the Judiciary. This includes the precedent set by the Oneida Appeals Commission/Oneida Tribal Judicial System of accepting appeals from Personnel Commission decisions. Where precedent for a particular matter has not been established, the Judges may refer to established Wisconsin or federal case law precedent or laws for guidance.
