I just attended a panel given by the Georgetown University Law Center Supreme Court Institute on yesterday's Indian law cases. The panel, which was composed of a distinguished set of Indian law experts, predicted that the White Mountain Apache case would be affirmed (five experts agreeing and one abstention), in favor of the Tribe, and that the Navaho case would be reversed (four experts to one, with one abstention). Of course, the panel had several distinct advantages (or handicaps, depending on how you look at it). First, they were all Indian law experts. Second, they got to see the oral arguments. Thanks to the Supreme Court Institute for a great program.
