North Quinault Properties LLC v. Quinault Indian Nation Complaint

Here is the complaint:

Complaint

An excerpt:

Under State and federal law Lake Quinault, a navigable waterway abutting the Quinault Indian Reservation and located in Washington State, should be open to the public for its use and recreation as well as to those non-tribal property owners with real property abutting the Lake shore such as the Plaintiffs. However for more than a decade the Quinault Indian Tribe has increasingly asserted “jurisdiction” and control over this navigable waterway, forcing out the public and non-tribal property owners in derogation of the Equal Footing Doctrine and the Public Trust Doctrine. Most recently, the Quinault Indian Tribe has restricted all use of the Lake for non-tribal members. Through this civil action, the Plaintiffs seek court determination as to the status of Lake Quinault and the property rights of non-tribal property owners abutting the Lake and court determination as to the public’s right to access of the Lake, its shore and lakebed.
