Nord v. Kelly — Tribal Court Jurisdiction over Tort Claim Arising on State Highway

Here, the Eighth Circuit affirmed the DCT opinion rejecting the jurisdiction of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians tribal court over a tort claim arising out of an auto wreck on a state highway within the reservation. Judge Murphy concurred in a separate opinion, noting the distinction between the Red Lake Reservation, which has never been ceded, and the reservation of the Mandad, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation, where the Strate case arose.
