CrowLaws.org is intended as a free, informational service to all interested persons, and especially Crow tribal members.

Note: The Founder/Editor is currently involved in litigation with Eldena Bear Don't Walk, the former Chief Appellate Court Judge, in Crow Tribal Court over the administration of the January 2010 Crow Tribal Bar Exam. As a result, the Crow Tribal Bar Exam was enjoined from taking place (under order from Special Judge William Eggers) during the July 2010, January 2011, July 2011, and January 2012 testing terms. The Founder/Editor is hoping for a speedy and just resolution to this lawsuit.
Update: On March 6th, 2012 a special panel of the Crow Court of Appeals reversed the lower court, ruling that sovereign immunity bars any suit against Eldena Bear Don't Walk for her administration of the Crow bar exam. Click here for a copy of the opinion.
