Minnesota Court of Appeals Dismisses Defamation Claim against Tribal Treasurer

Here is the opinion in Oberloh v. Johnson, a case arising out of the Lower Sioux Indian Community. An excerpt:

Because appellant is entitled to invoke sovereign immunity for conduct arising out of his official authority as tribal treasurer, we reverse.
