This exhibit includes materials related to the long-running case of Washington v. United States, which addresses tribal fishing rights in Washington state. The case was originally assigned to Judge George Boldt, and after he issued his first ruling in the matter in 1974 the case became known as the Boldt decision.
This collection includes digitized copies of print briefs from the Gallagher Law Library's collection related to the many proceedings stemming from that original 1970 case. To view the collection by individual proceeding or to keyword search within the briefs, visit the Washington Tribal Treaties and Fishing Rights collection on the UW Law Digital Commons repository. The collection on Digital Commons also includes briefs from other (non-Boldt) tribal fishing rights cases in Washington.
