ICRA: No recourse against Native American Tribes for Sexual Harrassment

Received a communique from Dennis Chappabitty concerning the need for enforcement of the Indian Civil Rights Act, which we have discussed before.    HERE and ICRA Oversight Request

I am representing a young Indian woman who was subjected to sexual harassment at the Quapaw Downstream Casino and she has no legal recourse to pursue a legal remedy in federal or state courts.   Please forward as we intend to demand that Congress amend the ICRA to allow recourse into the federal courts to seek justice in situations like this

No recourse for women from Native Tribes? Time for a change. Time for tribes to stand up against those tribes that will be responsible for eroding tribal sovereignty.
