Alto v. Black (9th Cir. - Dec. 26, 2013)

Usually when you're an adopted child, you're a child.  All the benefits (and liabilities) arising thereto.

With one big exception.  Indian children.

Sometimes the tribe may care -- deeply -- about not giving you (or your descendants) a share of gaming revenue.  And the resulting dispute may be litigated in so many different ways, and in so many venues, that it'll be hard to even keep track of them all.

But it all ends here.

Happy Boxing Day.
