Episode 60: Yet Another Supreme Court Power Grab

This week, we continue our review of consequential decisions to come from the Supreme Court this term and turn our attention to Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta, which will have major implications for tribal sovereignty and jurisdiction going forward. To discuss the decision, Lindsay Langholz is joined by Professor Maggie Blackhawk who explains how, as she described it, the Court acted “against hundreds of years of congressional action, against solid SCOTUS precedent, and hundreds of years of history” in handing down a “a devastating result for our democracy.” They also discuss a case the Court has agreed to take up next term regarding the Indian Child Welfare Act.
