Tonasket v. Sargent Cert Petition — Challenge to Colville Tax Compact

Here:

Tonasket v Sargent Cert Petition

Questions presented:

1. Whether Indian tribal immunity from suit allows the Indian tribe, a price fixing competitor, to be immune from federal anti-trust laws?

2. Whether the officials of an Indian tribe that include the tribe’s tobacco tax administrator, acting in violation of federal law, can be protected by tribal immunity when prospective relief is sought?

    How is this different than the Washington State liquor stores in which their liquor board sets the price for such sales? See- the article concerning Initiative Measure 1183.
