Among the inmates likely to get a new trial in federal court is Shaun Michael Bosse, 38, who was convicted and sentenced to death in the 2010 killing of Katrina Griffin and her two young children. The victims were all found inside a burning mobile home near Dibble, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) south of Oklahoma City.

Dozens of other inmates convicted in non-death penalty cases also are seeking to have their convictions tossed, which is expected to result in a dramatic increase in the workload of federal prosecutors.

Although Bosse is not a tribal citizen, the court determined that Griffin and her children were Native Americans and that the crime occurred on land inside the Chickasaw Nation’s historic reservation.

The decision is particularly frustrating to District Attorney Greg Mashburn, whose office prosecuted Bosse.

Unexpected consequences and nobody is ok with this.

It seems that roberts, gorsuch and kavanaugh take turns being idiots in order to give the four libs on the court a victory

today it was gorsuch

Next time it might be roberts

this is so demoralizing

Maybe the convicted will now face tribal justice?

If the court didn’t have jurisdiction, it didn’t have jurisdiction.

if they are guilty, they will be convicted by appropriate authorities.

Whatever 5 unelected demigods in black robes say is law

they decide their own jurisdiction
