State v. Pink

Washington State Appellate Court rules the State had no jurisdiction on a road in the Quinault Tribe Reservation.

We hold that the Quinault Tribe’s grant of a highway easement to the State did not terminate the Quinault Tribe’s interest in the land over which the highway runs and that the State did not have jurisdiction to prosecute Pink for unlawfully possessing a firearm on the road running through the tribal land. Accordingly, we affirm.
