     The Maddening and Dangerous Muddle of Federal Indian Law

    Confusion abounded on a crucial point during oral argument in the U.S. Supreme Court case of Michigan v. Bay Mills Indian Community on December 2, 1013.

The federal appeals court blocked Michigan from suing Bay Mills, on the ground that the Indian Community has sovereign immunity.
