  • Judge orders stop of Fort Sill construction

    Lawton, Oklahoma (AP)

    A federal judge stopped construction of a new military warehouse near the Medicine Bluffs on Fort Sill after a Lawton-based Indian tribe sued, arguing the structure is being built on sacred land.

    U.S. District Judge Timothy D. DeGuisti during late September granted the Comanche Nation a preliminary injunction to prevent work on the Training Service Center warehouse. In his ruling, DeGuisti said it appeared there was a “substantial likelihood” the Comanches would prevail in their claims under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the National Historic Preservation Act of 1996.
