On June 25, 2008, in Plains Commerce Bank v. Long Family Land & Cattle Co. the Supreme Court held that an Indian tribal court lacks jurisdiction to hear discrimination charges brought by tribal members against a non-Indian bank concerning the bank’s sale of its fee land to another non-Indian. Tom Gede of Bingham Consulting Group and of counsel to Bingham McCutchen LLP discusses the case.
