Connecticut Attorneys Admitted to Mohegan Tribal Court
Connecticut attorneys Michael D. Angotti and Richard A. Lord Jr. and counsel Jacqueline A. Maulucci were sworn in to the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Disputes Court after passing the bar exam on May 21, 2019.
The Mohegan Tribal Court, established by the Tribal Council pursuant to Article IX, Section 2(o), is a court of general jurisdiction which may be exercised in any area (except Gaming) over which the Tribal Council has given it authority to act. As used in the Mohegan Constitution, ’Gaming’ includes the development, construction, operation, promotion, financing, regulation and licensing issues, and includes jurisdiction over any associated hotel, resort or entertainment facility on Tribal lands. Both the Gaming Disputes Court and the Mohegan Tribal Court have two levels, a Trial Court and a Court of Appeals. For the Mohegan Tribal Court, however, the Mohegan Constitution provides for a final review of Court decisions by the Council of Elders.
