Held for 30 Years?[edit]

The case has significant negative citation history - while it may still be narrow law (and I am not sure of even that), I think it might be deceptive to say that it has held for 30 years. Is anyone more familiar with this case in a position to set me straight here? Editor Emeritus 16:19, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

      • It is accurate to say that this case has held. It is a case of continuing jurisdiction with multiple subproceedings being filed annually to fine tune it or interpret the many areas where the original decision was not able to provide guidance. Today, the orginal decision has been extended to shellfish harvest and its principals have been applied to off-reservation treaty hunting as well. It is alive and well. [Prof. Ron Whitener, Univ. of Washington Law School]

Appellate history[edit]

This article does not list anything about the appellate history - unless there is objection, I will work on restructuring the article to show this history. GregJackP Boomer! 12:37, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Text of decision?[edit]

Is the text of Boldt's decision available online anywhere? And if not, does anyone know where best to look for a copy? - Jmabel | Talk 02:38, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
