Supremes Seek Solicitor General Review of Oneida Reservation Case

The U.S. Supreme Court has postponed a decision on whether to hear a case regarding the status of the Oneida Indian Nation’s 300,000-acre historic reservation until it hears the Solicitor General’s view on the issue.

The high court announced the postponement in an order list released February 19, in which it announced which petitions are accepted, denied or otherwise dealt with.

The case involves a petition from Madison and Oneida counties in New York to the Supreme Court to review the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the Oneida Indian Nation’s 300,000-acre historic reservation remains intact—a ruling the appeals court rendered in 2003 and affirmed in 2010 and 2011.
