We've just returned from the 9th Annual Indigenous Law Conference at the Michigan State University College of Law. This year's symposium focused on "off-reservation" gaming. Our presentation, titled "'Off-Reservation' Gaming--A New Gamble, or the Same Stakes?", focused on the big picture of tribal gaming on newly acquired lands, particularly the "best interests" or "two-part determination" exception. We also tied Carcieri and Patchak, as well as the upcoming presidential election, to the future of tribal applications to build casinos on new trust lands. Interested in our presentation? We'll be happy to share an abstract.
