SCOTUS Order from Long Conference

Here.

The Supreme Court denied cert in Oklahoma v. Hobia, Wisconsin v. Ho-Chunk, Sac and Fox Nation v. Borough of Jim Thorpe, and Torres v. Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians.

The Court took no action on the Jensen v. EXC petition, perhaps because the Dollar General v. Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians matter is pending and involves similar issues (tribal court jurisdiction over nonmembers).

Petition for a Writ of Certiorari (as filed)

Question presented:

Does Michigan v. Bay Mills Indian Community, 134 S.Ct. 2024 (2014), require the dismissal of a State’s suit to prevent tribal officers from conducting gaming that would be unlawful under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act and a state-tribal compact when

• the suit for declaratory and injunctive relief has been brought against tribal officials – not the tribe;
• the gaming will occur in Indian country, on the land of another tribe; and

• the state-tribal compact’s arbitration provision does not require arbitration before filing suit?
