Indian Nations Law Update - February 2019

In Agua Caliente Band v. Riverside County, 2019 WL 351204 (9th Cir. 2019), non-Indians held leases from the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians (Tribe) within the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation for purposes that included homes, hotels, restaurants and retail stores. The Tribe sued to challenge Riverside County’s authority to impose a tax on “the full cash value of the lessee’s interest in” the property leased, arguing that the tax was preempted by federal law under the doctrine of White Mountain Apache Tribe v. Bracker.
