The district court determined that the Cherokee Nation
was a required party under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure
19(a).6 Having concluded that the district court erred in
holding that the Cherokee Nation was amenable to suit, we
reverse the judgment in part. On remand, the district court
must determine whether in equity and good conscience the
suit can proceed with the Cherokee Nations officers but
without the Cherokee Nation itself. See FED. R. CIV. P. 19(b).
for the whole thang!!
Now some body tell me what da heck this means!!
