New in the Supreme Court

Petitions for writ of certiorari were filed in two cases: Bodkin v. Cook Inlet Region, Inc., which deals with age discrimination and shareholder distributions, and Michigan Gambling Opposition v. Kempthorne, which deals with whether Congress’ delegation of authority to the Secretary of the Interior to acquire land for Indians is unconstitutional, and also whether the IRA authorizes the Secretary to acquire land in trust for Indian Tribes that were not recognized and under federal jurisdiction in 1934.
