Timbisha Shoshone Tribe v. US Dep't of the Interior, 13-16182

In a case challenging the Department of the Interior's recognition of the election results for leadership authority over the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe, the appeal of the District Court's dismissal is dismissed as moot where the Tribe’s recent adoption of a new constitution, which overhauled tribal membership requirements, mooted the appeal because there was no chance that a remand to the Bureau of Indian Affairs would make any difference whatsoever in the election results.
