Tribal Tax Litigation Update

Anthony Broadman's materials from the 2nd Annual Tribal Tax & Business Development Conference held yesterday in Portland are available. It has been an up and down year for tax controversy, including some bad losses (Ute Mountain Ute Tribe v. Rodridguez) and good wins (Mashantucket Pequot Tribe v. Town of Ledyard). As always, New York has provided a wealth of tobacco tax cases in which the state generally prevails and property tax cases in which tribal interests triumph.
