Excerpt:

Plaintiff Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians seeks a declaratory judgment that enforcement of defendant Bayfield County’s zoning code on fee simple land held by tribal members within the Red Cliff Band Reservation violates federal Indian law. Before the court is plaintiff’s fully briefed motion for summary judgment (dkt. #10), on which the court heard oral argument on November 21, 2019. For the reasons that follow, the court will grant plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment, finding that it is not unmistakably clear that Congress intended to allow application of the County’s zoning regulations on land held by tribal members within the boundary of the reservation.
