Ninth Circuit Rejects Casino Pauma Effort to Avoid NLRB Jurisdiction

Here is the opinion in Casino Pauma v. NLRB. From the court’s syllabus:

The panel granted the National Labor Relations Board’s petition for enforcement of its order; denied Casino Pauma’s petition for review; and upheld the Board’s conclusions that it may apply the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) to the relationship between employees working in commercial gaming establishments on tribal lands and the tribal governments that own and manage the establishments, and that Casino Pauma committed unfair labor practices in violation of the NLRA by trying to stop union literature distribution.
