U.S. v. Dowai (9th Cir. - Oct. 17, 2016)

Here's a question for the true legal geeks out there:

Is the district court of the Northern Marianas Islands . . .

(A) An Article I Treaty court;
(B) An Article III court; or
(C) An Article IV Territorial court?

The correct answer, according to the Ninth Circuit, is (C).

Which the Ninth Circuit also holds is perfectly fine.
