LaBuff v. United States Cert Petition

Here:

LaBuff Petition for Certiorari dated August 26, 2011

Lower court materials here.

Here are the questions presented:

1. Has the Ninth Circuit, contrary to United States v. Rogers, erroneously minimized consideration of the undisputed facts that petitioner is not socially recognized as an Indian, does not participate in Indian social life, and does not hold himself out as an Indian and thereby created a conflict with the Eighth Circuit?

2. Did the government prove beyond a reasonable doubt that petitioner is an Indian person where he is not a member of a tribe, is not socially recognized as an Indian, does not participate in Indian social life, and does not hold himself out as an Indian?
