This seminar discusses the doctrinal and practical implications of the Supreme Court’s recent opinion in U.S. v. Cooley. The holding in Cooley and its doctrinal approach to get there will have potentially significant effects on future Federal Indian Law jurisprudence and on the on-the-ground law enforcement within Indian communities.
Learn about the Court’s use of the second exception in Montana v. United States and what it may mean for future criminal and civil cases. Discover how tribal police departments might apply the result in Cooley to increase their authority over non-Indians present within tribal territory.
