New Update Memorandum published for the Tribal Supreme Court Project
A new July 2015 Tribal Supreme Court Project Update Memorandum is now available!
The Tribal Supreme Court Project is part of the Tribal Sovereignty Protection Initiative and is staffed by the National Congress of American Indians and the Native American Rights Fund. The project was formed in 2001 in response to a series of U.S. Supreme Court cases that negatively affected tribal sovereignty. The project’s purpose is to promote greater coordination and to improve strategy on litigation that may affect the rights of all Indian tribes. We encourage Indian tribes and their attorneys to contact the project to coordinate resources, develop strategy, and prepare briefs—especially at the time of the petition for a writ of certiorari, prior to the Supreme Court accepting a case for review. Besides the update memoranda, you can find copies of briefs and opinions on the major cases we track on the project’s website.
