  • Kevin Washburn’s recent journal article entitled “Recurring Issues in Indian Gaming Compact Approval,” including a general overview of allowable topics for negotiation under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act;
  • How ancillary facilities such as hotels have been impermissibly included in compacts and county intergovernmental agreements;
  • Recent California trends related to ancillary facilities and how practitioners can use these new trends to their advantage when negotiating or renegotiating intergovernmental agreements; and
  • The unique ethical issues faced by attorneys when negotiating the best deal for the tribal client may set negative precedent for Indian Country.
