Bodi v. Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians, 14-16121

In a suit brought by a former employee of a health clinic owned by a Tribe under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), 29 U.S.C. sections 2601–2654, the District Court's denial of a motion to dismiss the claims is reversed where a federally recognized Indian tribe does not waive its sovereign immunity from suit by exercising its right to remove to federal court a case filed against it in state court.
