Filing an Appeal at Tribal Court

The Isleta Tribal Appellate Court reviews all appeals filed of decisions made by the Isleta Tribal Court.  Appeals must be filed within five (5) days of the date the Order is issued.  However, it is important to note that filing an appeal does not automatically “stay” the lower court’s sentence unless the Appellate Court issues such an order.  

Those with questions or who wish to appeal a lower court decision must contact the Appellate Court at (505) 869-9692 to determine their process and requirements.
