The Supreme Court denied cert on January 12, 2009 in a little-known case called Roberts v. Hagener, out of the Ninth Circuit. The CA9 opinion is here and the Ninth Circuit briefs are here. Here is the cert petition (roberts-v-hegener-cert-petn), and an amicus brief from the Mountain States Legal Foundation supporting the petition (pacific-legal-foundation-amicus-brief).
This was a scary case, and only because the Supreme Court seems to be taking a greater interest in Indian Country the last few years. It was an attempt to convince the Court that the Fourteenth Amendment’s strict scrutiny test should apply to state game laws that recognize American Indian treaty rights. Of course, it is settled law that this is not the case, dating at least back to the 1970s treaty rights cases, and to Morton v. Mancari. But with the Supreme Court, nothing is really settled.
Anyway, dodged a bullet.
