Washington, DC (WIBX) – The U.S Supreme Court has issued its long awaited decision in the Oneida land claim.

The court has turned down the Oneidas appeal of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals decision in favor of New York State and Oneida and Madison Counties.That means the Supreme Court will not hear the case.

Madison County Board of Supervisors Chairman John Becker calls the ruling a great day for the citizens of Madison County, as well as New York State as a whole.

In a statement, the Oneida Indian Nation says the decision does not change the Nation’s litigation strategy.

It says the Nation will continue the course of transferring its lands into trust while remaining open to discussing a resolution with any party that wishes to participate with respect and in good faith.

The Nation is involved in two other lawsuits regarding the status of their lands.
