Turtle Talk: Appeals court nominee strong on Indian law
"Ed DuMont's nomination to the Federal Circuit (more news articles from How Appealing) is very interesting, given that as former attorney for the Office of the Solicitor General, he argued two Indian law cases (one opposed and one in favor, winning both). The two cases are Kiowa Tribe (1998, as amicus favoring the tribe) and Chickasaw Nation (2001).

Mr. DuMont also worked on the following cases: MichGO v. Kempthorne (D.C. Cir. 2008, on behalf of the Gun Lake Band); San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino (D.C. Cir. 2007, on the NCAI amicus brief); and City of Roseville v. Norton (D.C. Cir. 2003, on behalf of the United Auburn Band).
