Article VI the Tribal Constitution establishes the Tribal Court system of the San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe. Currently, the Tribal Court System consists of a Tribal Court and a Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals is the highest court within the Tribal Court System.

The judicial power of the Tribal Courts extends to all cases and controversies within the jurisdiction of the Tribe, in law or equity, arising under the Tribal Constitution, the laws or customs of the Tribe, or which are vested in the Tribal Courts by federal law or by virtue of the Tribe’s inherent sovereignty. Any case or controversy arising within the jurisdiction of the Tribe must be filed in Tribal Court or other appropriate forum established by the Tribal Council before it is filed in any other court.
