Nevada Federal Judge: Claims Against Tribe Over Grand Canyon Skywalk Barred
(December 4, 2015, 2:06 PM EST) -- LAS VEGAS — A public relations firm hired by an Indian tribe to promote the Grand Canyon Skywalk cannot pursue third-party claims against the tribe for indemnity and contribution related to the failed relationship between the firm and the project developer because the tribe did not waive its sovereign immunity, a Nevada federal judge found Nov. 30 (Grand Canyon Skywalk Development, et al. v. Ruby Steele, et al., No. 2:13-cv-00596, D. Nev.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 160906).
