TALEQUAH, Okla. (AP) – The Cherokee Nation Supreme Court has dismissed two petitions that sought to invalidate the results of the election that appointed the tribe’s principal and deputy chiefs.

Justices heard arguments Monday in the complaints that claimed Principal Chief-Elect Chuck Hoskin Jr. and Deputy Chief-Elect Bryan Warner committed campaign finance violations.

The court dismissed the claims Wednesday, saying they were not specific enough and should have been filed before the June 1 election.
