    Excellent article. In ND we challenged an county deputy’s arrest of an Indian on the T Mt Indian Res. for not following the tribal extradition law. Davis v Mueller, 8CA in l980’s. Eventually, the
    terrorizing charge “over the phone” was dismissed.
    Next, In MT the tribal and city police acted jointly and a 42 USC Sec. l983 suit went to the 9th Circuit. Evans v. McKay, 869 F2d 1341 (1989) (how to plead a l983 claim).
