Urban Indian Health Care Suit

In Hammitt v. Leavitt, filed in the Eastern District of Michigan before Judge Cohn by a Michigan Law School clinic, the plaintiff class (urban Indians in Detroit and elsewhere) claims the Indian Health Service has failed to meet its health care needs. Only 1 percent of the IHS budget goes toward urban Indian health care.

The motion to dismiss is here. The response brief is here. And the government's reply brief is here. Thanks to Trent Crable for identifying these materials.
