Oneida Nation of New York v. County of Oneida, New York

Petition for certiorari denied on October 17, 2011
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
10-1420 2d Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether the court of appeals contravened this Court's decisions in Oneida Indian Nation of New York v. County of Oneida and City of Sherrill v. Oneida Indian Nation by ruling that “equitable considerations” rendered petitioners' claims for money damages for the dispossession of their tribal lands in violation of federal law void ab initio; and (2) whether the court of appeals impermissibly encroached on the legislative power of Congress by relying on “equitable considerations” to bar petitioners' claims as untimely, even though they were brought within the statute of limitations fixed by Congress for the precise tribal land claims at issue.
