Federal District Court Rejects Shinnecock Sovereignty Claim November 1, 2007

Posted by rezjudicata in District Courts, Eastern District of New York.

Judge Bianco of the Eastern District of New York ruled in a bruising 129-page opinion that the Shinnecock Indian Nation lost so-called “aboriginal title” to a tract of land in the Hamptons. The ruling scuttles the Nation’s plans to open a casino there.

Summary and analysis coming soon.
