Gabe Galanda has published “Arbitration in Indian Country: Taking the Long View”, in the current edition of the American Arbitration Association's Dispute Resolution Journal.
By agreeing to private arbitration, however, tribes do not cede litigation or settlement leverage to non-tribal opponents who know tribes are increasingly fearful of litigating and losing again in state or federal court and thereby creating bad law for all tribes.
He will be speaking from that paper at Seattle University Law School on March 18 at a symposium, “ADR’s Role in Resolving Indian Disputes: A Tangled Net or A Connected Web?”
