Unusual Litigations — Disputes that look different: Episode 2

Native American tribes are sovereign, and much of the business activity that tribes (or tribe members) are involved in can end up in tribal courts rather than the usual state or federal courts.  In this episode, Grant Christensen (University of North Dakota) and Ryan Dreveskracht (Galanda & Broadman, Seattle) talk about how litigation can end up in tribal court; how it differs from regular state or federal courts; what are the current cutting-edge issues in tribal court litigation; and what is unique about representing tribal clients, including issues of sovereignty and comity.
