I didn't see a thread for generic discussions on SCOTUS cases, if there is one apologies and maybe move this post there.

I hadn't heard this was an upcoming case but read it today: NPR writes
Quote:
The court held that hunting rights for the Crow tribe under a 19th-century treaty did not expire when Wyoming became a state.
...
There isn't "any evidence in the treaty itself that Congress intended the hunting right to expire at statehood, or that the Crow Tribe would have understood it to do so," Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote for the majority.


The Hill adds
Quote:
They also ruled against Wyoming's argument that Bighorn National Forest, where Herrera was hunting, was not "unoccupied lands" as required under the treaty.

Wyoming had pointed to another Supreme Court ruling that found another Native American treaty ended when the state formally entered the union. However, Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote the majority opinion that Herrera's case centered on another ruling that found "Congress 'must clearly express' any intent to abrogate Indian treaty rights."


It is nice to see the court uphold (sadly, in a mostly partisan manner) that US treaties are still valid, no matter who they were made with.

I'm pretty sure that there was one at one time, but if so it is many years old, and I think it is fine to just use this one.
