The Spirit Lake Tribal Court has issued a restraining order against disputed chairman Roger Yankton, on behalf of the rest of the tribal council.

The tribal court order, issued Wednesday, bans Yankton from going within 100 feet of the tribal administration building. The ruling states that violating the restraining order may result in Yankton's arrest. The ruling also upholds an appeals court ruling that keeps Yankton out of office until the matter can be fully resolved next month. Tribal Council member Russ McDonald confirmed the restraining order, but would not offer any other comment. A message left for Roger Yankton hasn't been returned at this time.
