Hearing set for Oneida Nation land trust challenge

Author:

Lawyers will argue Wednesday on a challenge to the federal government's decision to take more than 13,000 acres into trust for the Oneida Indian Nation. Three motions will be argued in the Albany courtroom of U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence Kahn. They boil down to whether the Department of Interior has the authority to take the land into trust.
