Boyd School of Law Adds Industry Veterans to Lead School’s Indian Gaming Initiatives

Published

on

 

The William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV today announced the appointments of Jennifer Carleton and John Tahsuda as distinguished fellows to lead the law school’s Indian gaming initiatives.

Carleton and Tahsuda bring decades of experience advising and practicing before federal, state, and tribal governments and agencies in the development and application of tribal gaming law, policy and regulations.

“The addition of these two great leaders as distinguished fellows is an incredible step toward strengthening the Boyd Law Indian Nations Gaming and Governance Program, generously supported by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians,” said Leah Chan Grinvald, dean and Richard J. Morgan Professor of Law. “Their connections to and experiences with Indian nations will enhance our gaming law curriculum, which already boasts the most extensive gambling jurisprudence and the only advanced gaming law degree available in the United States.

Tahsuda is a principal with Navigators Global, LLC, a full-service issues management, government relations, and strategic communications firm located in Washington, D.C. He is also the Managing Member of Innovative Tribal Strategies LLC, an Indian-owned consultancy that provides strategic advice to Indian nations on business and government matters.

”I am very excited to work with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and the Boyd School of Law to establish the Indian Nations Gaming and Governance Program, and honored at the trust they have placed in us,” said Tahsuda.  “I especially applaud the vision of the Tribe to set in place this foundational resource for the current and future generations of tribal lawyers.”

Tahsuda has served as Senior Counselor to the Secretary of the Interior and as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary–Indian Affairs. He was also formerly the staff director of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, general counsel and legislative director of the National Indian Gaming Association, general counsel for the Oneida Indian Nation, and adjunct professor of law at Cornell Law School. He is a member of the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma.

Working in gaming her entire career has enabled Carleton to develop a unique expertise in payments, internet, sports, and Indian gaming, as well as an insider’s familiarity with the unique issues that arise when technology and regulation intersect. She recently joined Sightline Payments as its first Chief Legal Officer, and for UNLV she will help establish the advanced Indian law and gaming curriculum and create the first-of-its-kind Indian gaming experiential learning program.

“I’m honored to help establish an advanced Indian gaming law curriculum at the William S. Boyd School of Law,” said Carleton. “I want to ensure that there is an educational infrastructure in place in Nevada to support the rising generation of attorneys and advisers who understand Indian gaming, its importance and its impact.”

Before Sightline, Carleton was in-house counsel for an Indian casino for a decade and then spent 14 years in private practice as an adviser to some of the premier public and private gaming and investment companies in the world. She has taught advanced federal Indian gaming at the University of Wisconsin Law School and Boyd School of Law. She is a former member of the Executive Committee of the Gaming Law Section of the State Bar of Nevada, a former trustee of the International Association of Gaming Advisors, was previously the chair of the Indian Gaming Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin, and has published numerous articles on investment and Indian gaming regulatory compliance. Carleton was recently announced as a finalist for the 2022 Global Gaming Awards American Executive of the Year.

NASCAR unveils first step into the Fortnite ecosystem with custom Rocket Racing tracks inspired by its iconic events and venues

 

Today, NASCAR, America’s most popular motorsport, has officially entered the Fortnite ecosystem – announcing its debut with a one-of-a-kind, high-octane racing experience built in Rocket Racing.

Developed in partnership with award-winning UK metaverse studio, Karta, the experience launches with a Chicago Street Course map, styled on the real NASCAR Chicago Street Race taking place this Sunday 7th July, merging the thrill of NASCAR racing with the dynamic creativity of the Fortnite ecosystem.

With the first Chicago Street Map, players navigate multiple routes, master the art of speed, drift and avoid obstacles in intense multiplayer races or solo time trials.

Debuting ahead of the real-life Chicago Street Race, NASCAR’s official launch on Fortnite brings its second annual event in the center of one of the world’s greatest cities, into the Fortnite world. The map gives NASCAR fans, and players of all levels who may have never interacted with the sport, the chance to get closer to the real event than ever before – setting it apart from typical Rocket Racing maps.

With this fun experience aimed at gamers of all levels, NASCAR’s move into the Fortnite ecosystem isn’t just a one-time event while the Chicago race takes place. NASCAR is setting its sights on a permanent fixture on the platform, with the Chicago map marking the start of a long-term racing experience for players to continuously visit. Looking ahead at the NASCAR calendar, fans of America’s No. 1 form of motorsports and the Fortnite community can get excited, as NASCAR eyes wider plans to add more virtual recreations on the platform.

“NASCAR has always been about pushing boundaries and connecting with fans in exciting ways,” said Nick Rend, Managing Director of Esports & Gaming at NASCAR. “Fortnite provides the perfect platform to engage a global audience, blending the intensity of NASCAR racing with the immersive world of Fortnite. Karta, with their incredible creativity, attention to detail and innovative approach, were the perfect partners to help us bring this vision to life. We wanted to build something with longevity for both diehard NASCAR enthusiasts and the wider Fortnite community and we think we have succeeded with just that.”

Erik Londré, CEO of Karta, added, “Working with an icon of motorsports like NASCAR  has been a dream come true. Our goal was to capture the essence of NASCAR racing – the speed, the strategy, the adrenaline – and inject it with a dose of Fortnite fun. The result is something truly special – a high-octane, visually stunning racing experience that we know players will love.”

Karta is an award-winning metaverse studio renowned for creating engaging virtual gaming experiences for global brands. Karta has established itself as a leader in creating accessible and impactful brand experiences within the metaverse across gaming, music and esports.
