Tribal Supreme Court Project was established by tribal leaders in response to a series of devastating losses for Indian tribes before the Supreme Court of the United States. Since it was established in 2001, we have put forward the strongest legal arguments when litigation could not be avoided. But the losses have continued. So our message to tribes became and remains: “Stay away from the Supreme Court!”
With the doctrine of tribal sovereign immunity and the authority of states under IGRA on the table, this case has become high- stakes litigation for Indian tribes across the country. Although Bay Mills and other tribes have solid legal arguments to make to the Court, politics of this case do not bode well for a good outcome. Our hope is that the on-going efforts by the Bay Mills Indian Community to find an alternative resolution to this case will bear fruit.
To repeat our message to all tribes: “Stay away from the Supreme Court!”
