American Indian Property Law: The Story of Cobell

Professor: Professor Alex Pearl, Director, Center for Water Law and Policy, Texas Tech University School of Law
Credits: 1
Dates: June 24 – 28
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

CLE Credits:  13.75
CLE Fees: $650

Because this program takes place in Montana and in light of Professor Pearl’s position as the Chairman and President of the Cobell Scholarship Fund and his experience working on the Cobell litigation, this course reviews the origins of the Cobell case, the legal history of it, and its resolution. Cobell is a woefully ignored legal case in the American public conscience. It belongs in the same breath as well know cases (that have been turned into films) like Erin Brockovich, Loving, and A Civil Action. In addition to being not well-known, it is often painfully misunderstood. This course would expose students to one of the most impressively plead and litigated cases in the history of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The course would examine the original legal documents (complaint, briefs, and other materials) to go over the major points in the litigation. Some of the major aspects of the case to include would be: (1) that the complaint proceeded under Sec. 702 of the APA, (2) class certification, (3) contempt hearing against various governmental officials, (4) affirmations of applying fundamental trust law to the Individual Indian Money Account, (5) legal settlement and legislative passage.
