Yesterday, Attorney Michael Brown, who represents John Kroner in the case of John Kroner v. Oneida Seven Generations Corporation (Appeal No. 2010AP002533), conducted argument before the Wisconsin Supreme Court. The issues before the Supreme Court concern the Brown County Circuit Court’s decision to transfer the case to the Oneida Tribal Judicial System, and whether that decision was appropriate under Wisconsin’s tribal transfer statute (Wis. Stat. 801.54) and other law concerning tribal jurisdiction.
Video and audio recordings of the parties’ oral arguments are available here at the Wisconsin Eye website.
