North Dakota SCT Affirms State Court Jurisdiction over Reservation Housing Eviction Matter

Here is the opinion in Gustafson v. Poitra: Opinion

Excerpt:

Linus and Raymond Poitra appeal the district court judgment of eviction. The Poitras argue the district court erred by exercising jurisdiction over this matter, and by sending a North Dakota law enforcement officer onto the reservation to evict tribal members from property within the Turtle Mountain Reservation. We affirm.
