Settlement Announced in Tribal Voting Identification and Ballot Access Case
February 13, 2020
Robins Kaplan is pleased to announce that an agreement in principle has been reached in a case the firm has been handling pro bono for American Indian tribes in North Dakota. The case relates to voter identification and other ballot access issues affecting members of the Spirit Lake Nation, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and other Plaintiffs. Robins Kaplan attorney Tim Purdon represents the Tribes in this case.
“Under the terms of the agreement in principle, it will become easier for Tribal members in North Dakota to vote,” said Purdon, co-chair of the firm’s American Indian Law and Policy Group. “The pro bono program at Robins Kaplan LLP is second to none and I am proud that we took on this fight to help protect the Native Vote.”
Robins Kaplan’s pro bono program has a long-standing commitment to representing American Indian Tribes across the U.S. The firm’s work on behalf of tribes includes representation of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in a lawsuit against the federal government after it closed the only hospital emergency room on the tribe’s reservation. That case earned the firm recognition on the National Law Journal’s Pro Bono Hot List.
“We are glad to be working hand-in-hand with American Indian Tribes on these critical issues affecting them,” said Logan Drew, chair of Robins Kaplan’s Pro Bono Committee. “Our goal is to help level the playing field to ensure that Native rights are represented with the strongest legal team they can have.”
The firm was pleased to work with co-counsel Native American Rights Fund (NARF) and the Campaign Legal Center on this case.
