Any decision by the Yurok Tribal Council to deny access to records/documents may be appealed to the Yurok Tribal Court only upon exhaustion of all available administrative remedies as outlined in YTC 1.20.070.
The appeal must be filed with the clerk of the Yurok Tribal Court within 30 days of the issuance of such decision by the Yurok Tribal Council. The appeal shall be solely for an order to compel the Tribal program or director and employees thereof to grant access to records or permit amendments to records; no individual shall be permitted to sue for damages in such action. The Tribal Court shall be permitted, however, to grant any equitable relief necessary to finally determine the action. [Ord. 14 § 7, adopted, 8/9/2006.]
