United States v. Bryant
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 15-420
Decision below 792 F.3d 1042 (9th Cir. July 6, 2015).
The Indian Civil Rights Act was enacted to address pervasive violations of civil rights by Indian tribal courts. The Indian Civil Rights Act has failed to meaningfully extend Bill of Rights protections to tribal court criminal defendants – lack of counsel, lack of accessible and reliable codes and rules, lack of law-trained judges, lack of judicial independence, lack of resources, modification or outright rejection of ICRA rights by tribal courts, ineffectiveness of habeas corpus remedy.
