If anyone would be interested in providing art for the poster and promotional materials for the TICA-ILPC Conference (coming up October 26-27! We’re going to have CLEs!), we would love to hear about it.
We use a painting and we pay the artist for the use of the work.
We print large posters of the art with the conference text and give them as gifts to attendees and presenters. It is also helpful if we are able to receive a high res scan of the work.
The deadline is Thursday, February 28th, 2018.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions.
Andrew Rome has published “Black Snake on the Periphery: The Dakota Access Pipeline and Tribal Jurisdictional Sovereignty” in the North Dakota Law Review.
Here are the relevant materials in Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation v. Lawrence (D. Utah):
This matter is on remand from the Tenth Circuit.
Here are the materials in Becker v. Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation (D. Utah):
Discussion and argument heard on the motions. After taking a recess, and for the reasons stated on the record, the court made the following rulings on the record:
The court DENIES 70 Mr. Becker’s Motion for Preliminary Injunction;
DENIES 71 Motion for Leave to File Sealed Document;
DENIES 75 The Tribe’s Motion for TRO, Motion for Preliminary Injunction, and Motion for Permanent Injunction; and
GRANTS 93 Tribe’s Motion for Leave to File Sur-Reply.
The court also stays the case and all remaining pending motions (Dkt. Nos. 72, 73 and 74). Should the tribal court decline jurisdiction, the court will then address the remaining motions. The parties are granted leave to file a motion to lift the stay if circumstances should change before resolution of both the tribal court and state court actions.

As a reminder, this is the cert petition regarding the very long Utah Supreme Court decision which held there is a federal reasonableness standard for determining whether an unwed father is a parent under ICWA. That decision is here.
Another reminder–there are generally no cert stage amicus briefs filed in opposition to a cert petition. And a cert petition is just asking the Supreme Court to take the case. It doesn’t mean the Court has taken the case.
Here is the order in Navajo Nation v. San Juan County (D. Utah):
Here is “Two Bullets and Numerous Misfires.”
Here is “A Killing in Saskatchewan,” in the New York Times.
