"The Seneca Nation of Indians won a significant victory over the State of New
York in federal Court on Thursday.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled in favor of Seneca
Nation when it rejected the State of New York’s attempt to dismiss a lawsuit
filed by the Tribe in 2018. The lawsuit alleged ongoing violations of federal
law related to the continued occupation of the New York State Thruway on the
Nation’s Cattaraugus Territory.
At issue is a three-mile stretch of highway on I-90 that goes through the
Seneca Reservation, which is about 30 miles south of Buffalo, New York.
The Court’s decision upholds a 2020 United States District Court decision that
denied the State’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit."
