Senate leaders late last month appointed a former Colorado U.S. Attorney to a panel that will examine the effectiveness of the American Indian justice system.

Troy Eid, who served as U.S. Attorney from 2006 to 2009, was named on Dec. 22 to the Indian Law and Order Commission, which was established under the 2010 Tribal Law and Order Act. The nine-member panel will make recommendations to the president and Congress on how to improve criminal justice systems in tribal communities.

“I greatly appreciate the confidence of Senator [Harry] Reid [D-Nev.] and retiring Senator Byron Dorgan [D-N.D.], chair of the Committee on Indian Affairs and sponsor of the Tribal Law and Order Act, on this important issue,” said Eid, who leads the Indian Law Practice for Greenberg Traurig LLP, where he is a partner.

The Senate Democratic leader describes the Republicans' refusal to hold hearings on President Obama's eventual Supreme Court nominee "historically unbelievable and historically unprecedented."
