The Chemehuevi Indian Tribal Court was first established as a “Magistrate Court” in the mid-1980s to hear cases stemming from violations of the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe’s Conservation Code, which governs the preservation and conservation of the Tribe’s/Chemehuevi Indian Reservation’s natural resources.
In 1994, the tribe enacted an ordinance establishing the Chemehuevi Indian Tribal Court, a court of limited jurisdiction; however, the Court did not become active until the latter part of 1996.
