Q. If a Native American marries a non native, when he dies is she entitled to his casino royalties?
A: The answer to your question depends on a variety of facts that should be explored by competent counsel. Your should consult with an attorney who is familiar with federal Indian Law and probate law. Good luck.
Q. Who would take on a civil case where I am the plaintiff suing a casino?
A: I am assuming the casino is operated by a Indian tribe. If so, only an attorney who is familiar with the concept of tribal sovereign immunity should handle your case. In general, unless the tribe has waived its immunity, it will be difficult to proceed with a case. You should consult with an attorney experienced in that area of law.
