Omaha Tribe v. StoreVisions Cert Petition

Filed yesterday, I’m told:

Omaha Tribe Cert Petition

Question presented:

Is apparent authority sufficient to bind an Indian tribe to a waiver of the tribe’s federally protected sovereign immunity, when the purported waiver is executed by a tribal official acting outside the scope of his actual authority?

Lower court materials are here.
