Under guidelines set forth by the U.S. government, each Native American tribe maintains legal sovereignty over civil actions that happen on tribal lands. As a result, Indian casinos are theoretically immune from civil lawsuits, including personal injury lawsuits.
However, under the Tribal-State Gaming Compact, Indian casinos in California agreed to a limited waiver of tribal immunity for personal injury (tort actions). This opens the door to sue casinos and their affiliated tribes for slip-and-falls and other bodily injury.
