March 14, 2018. George Soule testified today to the Minnesota Supreme Court in favor of amendments to Rule 10 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice. Rule 10 permits Minnesota district courts to enforce orders and judgments from Tribal Courts. The proposed amendments – supported by the Minnesota Tribal Court State Court Forum and the Minnesota Supreme Court Advisory Committee on the General Rules of Practice – would strengthen the rule to provide for enforcement of Tribal Court orders. As a Tribal Court Judge for four Minnesota tribes, George is a member of the Forum. George is past President of the Minnesota American Indian Bar Association.
