Ninth Circuit: Injunction Against Indian Tribe With Warring Factions Was Appropriate

Metropolitan News-Enterprise Thursday, June 7, 2018 By a MetNews Staff Writer

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed a permanent injunction granted to the State of California requiring that an Indian tribe keep the peace at a casino near Yosemite National Park where violence broke out Oct. 9, 2014, between rival factions.


“Because the district court did not recognize one faction over another, and did not err by failing to recognize tribal court rulings that were irrelevant to the issues before it, reversal of the district court’s judgment or permanent injunction would not redress or have a practical effect on the injuries alleged” by the appellants, the memorandum decision, filed Tuesday, declares.


“On the merits, the district court did not abuse its discretion in granting the injunction. The State of California sufficiently established irreparable harm in the danger that the continued conflict over the tribal casino operations posed to public.”
