The Principle Of Proximity, Jeremy Waldron 2011 NYU School of Law

The Principle Of Proximity, Jeremy Waldron

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

How should we think about, how should we model the basis of political community. To the extent that it is a matter of choice, what should be the basis on which the people of the world divide themselves up into distinct political communities. This paper seeks to cast doubt on the proposition that it is a good idea for people to form a political community exclusively with those who share with them some affinity or trust based on culture, language, religion, or ethnicity. I want to cast doubt on that proposition by articulating an alternative approach to the formation of ...

An Idea Of American Indian Land Justice: Examining Native Land Liberation In The New Progressive Era, Richael Faithful 2011 American University Washington College of Law

An Idea Of American Indian Land Justice: Examining Native Land Liberation In The New Progressive Era, Richael Faithful

Articles in Law Reviews & Journals

This article is inspired by Professor Robert Odawi Porter’s remarks during the 2009 D.C. Federal Indian Bar conference in which he outlined a seemingly radical proposal for “land liberation” for American Indian tribes – the abandonment of United States trusteeship over tribal land, and return of title and associated rights to numerous tribes who have lost their land due to nefarious governmental policies and bad deals. In an effort to bridge Porter’s visionary legal viewpoint with renowned economist and philosopher, Amartya Sen’s recent visionary contribution on justice, An Idea of American Indian Land Justice, helps revive an ...

Creating Bright-Line Rules For Tribal Court Jurisdiction Over Non-Indians: The Case Of Trespass To Real Property, Grant Christensen 2011 University of North Dakota

Creating Bright-Line Rules For Tribal Court Jurisdiction Over Non-Indians: The Case Of Trespass To Real Property, Grant Christensen

American Indian Law Review

The 2010 passage of the Tribal Law and Order Act will invest significantly more resources in tribal courts. As tribal courts expand, conflicts between sovereignties - tribal, state, and federal - are likely to occur with much greater frequency. Tribal court civil jurisdiction over non-Indians will be among the issues most frequently appealed to federal courts. I offer this piece to propose a new and novel solution - that tribal courts, through a piecemeal process, be extended absolute civil jurisdiction over non-Indians for those civil offenses over which tribes have the greatest interest. This article takes one of the most common jurisdictional questions ...
