SCOTUS Grants Cert in Ysleta del Sur Pueblo v. Texas

Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo’s Cert Petition

Question Presented:

Whether the [Ysleta del Sur Pueblo and Alabama-Coushatta Indian Tribes of Texas] Restoration Act provides the Pueblo with sovereign authority to regulate non-prohibited gaming activities on its lands (including bingo), as set forth in the plain language of Section 107(b), the Act’s legislative history, and this Court’s holding in California v. Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, 480 U.S. 202 (1987), or whether the Fifth Circuit’s decision affirming Ysleta I correctly subjects the Pueblo to all Texas gaming regulations.
