Oklahoma Sovereign Immunity Case

This one is called Murphy v. Kickapoo and is out of the Western District of Oklahoma. It exemplifies the current problem of tribal sovereign immunity litigation — i.e., courts desperately trying to find a waiver or some reason why tribal immunity does not bar the suit, in plain opposition and conflict to clear Supreme Court precedent (Kiowa Tribe).
