Summary judgment in Warm Springs Tribal court – employment

Shareholders Dan Hasson and Bill Earle succeeded in obtaining summary judgment in favor of their client, a federally-recognized Indian tribe, in a wrongful termination claim brought by a former tribal employee. In obtaining complete dismissal of the plaintiff’s claim, Dan and Bill successfully relied on Warm Springs Tribal Court of Appeals precedent they had previously established in the area of employment law.
