MSBA files General Rules of Practice comments

The MSBA has filed comments with the court supporting proposed amendments to Rule 10 of the General Rules of Practice. The proposed amendments incorporate many of the changes sought by the Joint Tribal/State Court Forum to strengthen recognition of tribal court orders. The MSBA based its position on the following:

  1. The value of enhancing comity, the voluntary recognition by courts of one jurisdiction of the laws and judicial decisions of another;
  2. increasing clarify and efficiency for the courts, litigants, and institutions that do not currently recognize tribal court orders;
  3. cutting back on delays in obtaining services for tribe members when institutions do not recognize tribal court orders; and
  4. the improvements made to tribal courts since the original proposed Rule 10 came before the MSBA in 2002.
