United States v. Bryant: Key member of the appellate team representing former U.S. Attorneys who submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court. The U.S. Attorneys supported the federal government’s position relating to the Violence Against Women Act’s (“VAWA”) treatment of Native American tribal court convictions as predicate domestic violence convictions. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the Ninth Circuit’s decision and validated the position advocated by amici that prior tribal court convictions are properly considered predicate offenses under VAWA. By affirming the Ninth Circuit’s decision, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed prosecutors to address escalating violence with escalating legal consequences in VAWA prosecutions.
