In 1986, Glenn successfully argued the tribal gaming case, California v. Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, before the United States Supreme Court. Since that time, he has also been involved in a variety of other important Indian law cases, including Cabazon Band v. Wilson, 37 F.3d 430 (9th Cir. 1994), United States v. Santa Ynez, 983 F.
