Attempts to reach the Comanche Nation for comment on this story were unsuccessful.
The freeze placed on the tribe's funds marks the second time in the past few weeks a leadership dispute has caused tribal funds to be frozen by a bank.
In late April, a Clinton bank placed an administrative freeze on $6.4 million belonging to the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes due to a leadership quarrel between the governor and lieutenant governor. A district judge is expected to rule on the issue Friday in Custer County.
In the meantime, the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes have sued the judge in Custer County, as well as the bank, for keeping the funds frozen.
