Michigan v. Bay Mills Indian Community - Post-Argument SCOTUScast

SCOTUScast 12-31-13 featuring Tom Gede
Featuring Thomas F. Gede
December 31, 2013

On December 2, 2013, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Michigan v. Bay Mills Indian Community. The question in this case is twofold. First, whether a federal court may exercise jurisdiction to prohibit an activity that violates the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA), but does not occur on Indian lands; and second, whether tribal sovereign immunity precludes a state from suing a tribe in federal court for violations of IGRA that take place outside of Indian lands.

To discuss the case, we have Tom Gede, who is a principal in Bingham Consulting and of counsel at Bingham McCutchen.
