Native American Tribal Court Opinions Available on TribalCourts.com.
REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 9, 2001
VersusLaw, Inc., the online provider of legal research, has announced the launch of TribalCourts.com.
VersusLaw is developing TribalCourts.com to assist Native American courts in publishing their judicial opinions on the Internet. TribalCourts.com will now serve as the gateway for all the contracts and necessary contact information needed to join the database.
VersusLaw offers the world's largest collection of Native American opinions available in electronic format. The tribal court database has grown substantially since its was created in March 2000. In August 2001, opinions from the Hopi Tribal Court and Navajo Nation Supreme Court were added to the database, significantly increasing the total number of searchable cases. "We now have contracts with 29 tribes nationwide, from the Mashantucket Pequots in Connecticut, to the Nome Eskimo Community in Alaska," said Tim Jones, Project Manager for TribalCourts.com. "Hopefully, that number will someday include every tribal court in the United States."
TribalCourts.com is providing all participating tribal court administrations with free unlimited access to the VersusLaw research service. The VersusLaw collection includes appellate level decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court, the Federal Circuits, and the appellate courts from all 50 states, for $8.95 per month, per professional.
All courts of federally recognized tribes are invited to participate. The VersusLaw tribal court database is being developed in cooperation with the National American Indian Court Judges Association (NAICJA).
