Appeals court clarifies tribal police jurisdiction on state highways

• Arizona Daily Star
Tribal police officers do not have the same authority to stop and question non-Indians traveling on state roads within the reservation as they do tribal members, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday. The judges said roadblocks set up on state roads are permissible — but only to the extent the stop is limited to determine if the person is an Indian.

This was a huge ruling that Terry got today, and the Shelton arrest/ Pastor Anderson kind of overshadowed it.
