Wednesday round-up


  • In the George Washington Law Review, Ezra Rosser considers the court’s decision in Lewis v. Clarke, in which the court held that a tribe’s sovereign immunity does not extend to a tribal employee sued in his individual capacity, arguing that what is “frustrating about Justice Sotomayor’s opinion in Lewis is not the holding itself, but that when placed alongside much bigger losses, Lewis helps illustrate the Court’s hostility to Indian sovereignty.”
