Cliff Schrader: High court doesn’t bode well for Bay Mills, Indian rights
Monday was the state of Michigan vs. the Bay Mills Indian Community — or so most of us thought. Actually, it was more of a battle between Bay Mills and the U.S. Supreme Court about tribal sovereign immunity rights.
Since Bay Mills owns 16 acres of prime downtown Port Huron real estate, how did our hometown team do? After reading through the 80 pages of mind-numbing transcripts from the hearing, it’s obvious this has little to do with Indian casinos in Michigan.
