Mohawk Tribe outraged after U.S. Senator introduces legislation they say specifically targets Indian Tribes

In response to a controversial bill introduced by U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, one that prohibits tribal sovereign immunity from being used to block certain types of patent challenges, the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe issued a statement claiming the new legislation discriminates against Native American Tribes. “The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (SRMT) is outraged that U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO), has introduced legislation that specifically targets Indian tribes, yet exempts state universities and other sovereign governments engaged in the very same IPR process.  The double standard that is being introduced by the Senator as a solution for a perceived abuse of the IPR proceedings does nothing to solve the underlying problem.
