John Kroner appeals an order transferring his civil suit to the Oneida Tribal Judicial System pursuant to WIS. STAT. § 801.54, titled, discretionary transfer of civil actions to tribal court. Kroner argues the circuit court erred because the record did not support its determination that the tribal court had concurrent jurisdiction. Kroner further contends the court failed to properly consider the statutory discretion factors. We conclude the record supports the circuit court’s exercise of discretion, and affirm.

    A rich man screwed-up at his job and got fired. Hmmm. O.K.
    But, he gets to file a civil suit to try to go back to work, where they don’t want him anymore.
    You or I get fired for screwing up and we go home mad or sad, recover and then go out and find a new job.
