Diminishing Returns

Guest: Ethan Jones, Lead Attorney, Yakama Nation Office of Legal Council

Yakama Nation v. Klickitat County involves a dispute that dates back 150 years and
invokes issues central to Tribal sovereignty in Washington state.

Revolving around the status of tract of land on the Yakama Reservation's southern boundary,
the case calls in to play a legal framework that has been a pillar of U.S. Indian law for centuries.

When you throw ​in a SCOTUS ruling with major potential implications, the conversation gets
even more complicated.

On a new episode of DISCOVERY, attorney Ethan Jones joins UW Law to discuss current
issues, their history and potential outcomes as the case makes its way through the Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeals.
