Native American Cases To Watch In 2016
The U.S. Supreme Court will take a look at a number of cases involving tribal concerns this year. Attorneys working in Native American law are watching closely. Attorney James T. Meggesto says any case before the court of Chief Justice John Roberts raises concerns for attorneys who represent tribes, as tribes have a generally “dismal” record in the Supreme Court.
“It’s easy to see four votes against tribal interests, no matter what,” Mr. Meggesto said.
